Welcome to Marquette!
Are you wondering how your hard-earned money can grow forever? Your gift will benefit this community you are so proud to be a part of.
We have been serving the community for 30 years!
The Community Foundation of Marquette County has over $17 million in assets - from generous gifts, large and small made over time.
The earnings on those assets are used to provide scholarships to area youth and grants to non-profit organizations through a competitive grant application process. Your donations to the community foundation remain in its asset pool forever and the earnings on your contributions repeatedly benefit our community. It is the perfect way to give back to the community that you call home.
The Greater Ishpeming Area Community Fund and Negaunee Community Fund will be giving one $3,000 grant to an eligible non-profit organization in November 2018. Submit your application by September 30, 2018 for consideration. The Fund Committee will choose the 5 proposals that it feels are the most worthy of the grant funds. Those 5 non profits will present their proposals at a Greater Ishpeming Negaunee Area Chamber Businesss After Hours event on November 7th at the US National Ski & Snowboard Hall of Fame and Museum. Those attending the event will vote with their dollars for the non profit proposal they feel is deserving of the $3,000 grant. Each non profit will walk away with the dollars they receive for votes, but the proposal with the most votes/dollars will receive the $3,000 grant!
