New and Noteworthy
The Young Citizen of the Year award recognizes leadership and community service on the part of Washtenaw County high school students. Nominations are due on April 3rd, 2017.
Legacy: We use that word a lot in the nonprofit sector and especially here at AAACF as an organization committed to building endowment. Acting as an ambassador has been an important theme for my family, tied inextricably to the goal of working towards the common good.
Since the Community Scholarship Program was announced with fanfare last spring, AAACF is pleased that even more people are finding out about our scholarship opportunities—students, parents, and donors alike.
In the fall of 2016, AAACF piloted a new type of community investment, called Bold Ideas, to invest in innovative ideas and projects that generate a significant leap in how our community addresses a long-term or emerging need.
Grant applications are now open for the Community Grantmaking, Bach Fund for Seniors, and Youth Council Grant Programs. Visit aaacf.org/grants for more details.
