Annual Report

Dear Friends,

Anywhere you look in Marquette County you will find evidence of the work of the Community Foundation.  From the Fresh Coast Film Festival to the Forsyth Senior Center Greenhouse Project, nonprofit organizations continue to receive grant funding because of our generous donors.  In 2017 450 of you have generously gifted over $754,000!  This process is what gives life to our communities.  By adding the leadership component to our mission, we can impact current issues and opportunities such as clean energy, water quality in Lake Superior, the upcoming Census in 2020, community development and the environment.  Engaging our residents also enables us to attract outside private and public funding to assist in this very critical work.  Your giving makes it possible for hundreds of programs to take place every day of every year and we thank you!
