The Mackinac Island Community Foundation promotes the general well-being of Island residents and visitors, by working in community partnerships to generate endowed and un-endowed funds and stimulate community-wide initiatives.

Mackinac Island is a special place treasured by generations of residents and visitors who care about preserving our community’s unique traditions while creating a vibrant future. MICF amplifies your philanthropy to achieve this vision and benefit Mackinac Island forever.

We manage a collection of endowed funds, and make grants from these funds for projects that help our community continue to thrive.

Our Focus Areas and Funds

When you make a gift to an endowment, your gift principal is never spent. Each year, a portion of investment earnings are given back to the Island community through grants. Gifts to the community foundation’s endowment are fully deductible.
