About the Community Foundation for Livingston County

The Community Foundation for Livingston County is a permanent community endowment established to improve the public well-being and quality of life in Livingston County. The Community Foundation is led by our Advisory Board, which consists of local business professionals and civic leaders whose roots run deep in Livingston County, not just because they live here, but because it’s their home. Our Advisory Board members call this region home and have a strong understanding of how Livingston County can be improved.

Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan Affiliation

Our foundation operates as an affiliate fund of the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan, and we benefit greatly from this relationship and the resources they make available to us. Through the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan, we receive administrative support, including gift and grant processing, investing, and staff support. The Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan has even invested in Livingston County causes in the past as a result of our counsel and encouragement. Rest assured though, your contributions will be restricted to causes within Livingston County.

SEE THE IMPACT

Building Our Endowment

It's the Community Foundation's goal to build the endowment, or community capital, to meet our area's needs today and tomorrow. The endowment pool is managed professionally with a long-term perspective.  Funds invested in the endowment pool are subject to a spending plan that makes a percentage of the fund's average market value available for grants each year.
