Youth Fund

Back to Funds...

This fund was established by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to promote philanthropy and community participation among the youth of Mackinac Island. Our Youth Advisory Committee identifies community needs and contributes toward solutions. They also recommend grant distributions from this fund. Community service is a very important part of the Michigan Community Foundations' Youth Project because young people are a vital resource to the community. It is a YAC priority and they regularly coordinate service projects.
