A group of passionate Dexter residents have established the Dexter Community Fund, a new permanent endowment that will be available to invest in community projects and programs that enrich the quality of life in Dexter.
In celebration of its 3rd Anniversary and to recognize the Community Foundation for helping the new agency grow, Mentor2Youth named AAACF to its "Dean's List". In its first three years, the agency has helped more than 350 students.
