Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation

YACF Grant Awards


Since 2001, the Ypsilanti Area Community Fund has awarded nearly $1.2 million in grants to support local community projects and programs that benefit the residents of Ypsilanti.

Helping local health clinics provide access to quality health care, providing funding for new musical instruments and music instructors at the Ypsilanti Youth Orchestra, helping Parkridge Community Center expand programming, and helping to rebuild  Rutherford Pool are just a few examples of how YACF grants have made a real difference in the Ypsilanti community.

Starting in 2017, funding will be awarded to programs and services that are supported by collaborative partnerships across sectors. Priority populations for this grant program are families that are economically disadvantaged, families without access to healthcare, and families that are historically marginalized and therefore underrepresented in higher degree attainment.
