The Saginaw Community Foundation helps enhance the quality of life for the Saginaw County community by leveraging funds; serving as a catalyst for change; providing support to nonprofits; and acting as a neutral partner and community convener.

Linking donor interests to community needs

The Saginaw Community Foundation offers a unique way to give back to your community through its permanent, yet flexible, collection of endowment funds. The principal of these funds remain intact forever, with the investment income annually invested back into the community in the form of grants and scholarships. This means your contribution is "For good. Forever." The foundation can help you find a fund that matches your philanthropic interests or help you set up a fund of your own.

Supporting community programs and projects

Each year, the Saginaw Community Foundation infuses thousands of dollars back into the Saginaw County community in the form of grant making. Through its multiple grant programs and funds, the foundation supports a wide variety of programs and projects with the focus of improving the quality of life in Saginaw County's communities. Since its inception, the foundation has granted more than $10 million to programs and projects that benefit Saginaw County residents.

Helping students pursue an education

Because education is vital to the growth and future of every community, the Saginaw Community Foundation administers a variety of scholarship programs for high school, community college, undergraduate, graduate and vocational students. Since awarding our first $500 scholarship in 1987, the Saginaw Community Foundation has awarded more than $3 million in scholarships.
