All members are encouraged to engage in quarterly meetup events, networking, and giving opportunities. Advisory Committee members help shape the meetups and provide guidance on the continued expansion and evolution of this initiative.
The platform for the Ann Arbor Entrepreneurs Fund is the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation (AAACF), a local nonprofit that stewards over $135 million in charitable assets, grants millions of dollars every year to Washtenaw County nonprofits, and can help interested entrepreneurs become effective philanthropists.
Members commit either 1% of their ownership in business ventures or 1% of annual profits from those ventures. These commitments are designated to a “community impact fund” at the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation that generates a permanent stream of charitable grants for local nonprofits. Members also contribute $125 in annual support of the initiative.
Advisory Committee Members contribute $2,000 in annual support for the initiative, in addition to their commitments.
