Serving Jackson, Michigan since 1948

   Celebrating the Centennial of Community Foundations in America, 1914-2014


In January 2014, the Board of Trustees held two Strategic Planning sessions.  During those meetings, it became clear that our Mission Statement did not properly reflect who we have become as an organization or align well with our Strategic direction.  After several events and extensive discussions as a Board and community, we resoundingly agreed on a new Mission Statement!  The Foundation thanks all those that participated during this process.  We especially thank Sarah Ermatinger for lending her artistic skills to make our statement come to life!  The following represents our commitment to be a community leader and connector for all citizens of Jackson County!






Join us for "Foundation Fundamentals" Coffee & Donuts with the CEO  


Beginning on July 24th, I will be presenting quarterly, hour long informational sessions  from 8 am - 9 am. 
The meetings will cover various topics to help demystify what goes on inside a community foundation like "How does the endowment work?", "What is a spending policy?" and "What kinds of funds are there and what is the difference?".  This is also your chance to ask me questions about the Foundation and its work!
  Reserve your seat today by calling (517) 787-1321.
Hope to see you there!
Monica Moser
President & CEO
