Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation

Community Impact

We partner with local community leaders from the private, public, and nonprofit sectors to seek innovative and effective solutions to community-wide issues. 

Two strategic priorities currently guide AAACF’s investments in our community's well-being, its People & Place:

Investing in People:

  • Through Coordinated Funding AAACF works with five local funding partners to take a collective approach to  addressing the needs of Washtenaw County's most vulnerable residents.

Investing in Place:

  • Through Cultural Economic Development, AAACF has embarked on a three- part strategy  to strengthen our local arts & culture sector in ways that promote economic prosperity and community vibrancy. We recognize that investing in and strengthening the nonprofit arts & culture sector contributes to the quality of life in our community and plays an important role in helping local businesses recruit and retain top talent.
