New and Noteworthy
We are thrilled to announce our second call for proposals for ideas from local arts and culture organizations on projects that will spur economic prosperity as well as enhance both the artistic and cultural landscape of Washtenaw County.
Washtenaw Coordinated Funders, a consortium of public and private funders, awarded $4.586 million for Human Services Program/Operations to meet the needs of our community’s most vulnerable for the next two years.
As your Community Foundation, we strive to be the resource for you that takes all of that data and turns it into actionable knowledge that will inform your community philanthropy. As we shared at the Annual Community Meeting in April, the data for Washtenaw County shows us that our collective work together is not done.
The Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation (AAACF) has been awarded the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary’s Award for Public-Philanthropic Partnerships, accepted on behalf of the Washtenaw Coordinated Funders.
Many thanks to everyone who attended our Annual Community Meeting on April 11, 2016 at Washtenaw Community College! Check out the photos and presentation slides here.
