Putting community first

The mission of the Leelanau Township Community Foundation is to support vital civic initiatives until our community becomes all that we’ve envisioned it can be. We pledge to achieve our mission by:

  • Helping to meet the needs of the residents of Leelanau Township;
  • Building diverse permanent endowment funds from a wide range of donors;
  • Seeking local volunteers to help in community ventures via their involvement in proactively determining local needs then aiding in the development of programs of fulfillment;
  • Developing community understanding of the role of charitable giving within a local environment that can fulfill local community needs and;
  • Involving the youth by teaching them their role in making a positive difference in the community and empowering them in the process of grant making and leadership.
