After Marty Buhr Grimes retired from teaching in 2006, she worked diligently to increase the impact of the Buhr Foundation over the past 15 years through increased site visits and interactions with nonprofit leaders. The Buhr Foundation also broadened its traditional focus on capital projects to recognize the importance of providing general operating support, a key principle of philanthropy shared by AAACF.
By transitioning their assets to AAACF, family foundations can continue their philanthropy while amplifying their impact by being invested through the community foundation’s larger endowment and drawing upon the nonprofit and philanthropic knowledge of AAACF’s 14 staff. Starting with the Sarns Ann Arbor Fund in 1990, other prominent family foundations have transitioned to AAACF over the years, more recently including the Jack & Ginny Sinn Family Foundation and the Amherst & Janeth Turner Foundation.
