Did you know that in 2013, our Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse (AODA) Grant Cycle awarded $30,390 to 7 different organizations?  Funded programs ranged from youth education and awareness to upgrades in law enforcement equipment to resources for area treatment providers. The grants will be awarded at our Annual Meeting in August.

Women’s Giving Circle
The Women’s Giving Circle was established in 2008 as an affiliate of the M&M Area Community Foundation with the help of an anonymous donation. Since then, it has grown its mission to support local projects that are important to women and girls. The Circle is inclusive, and currently lists over 120 members.

Doug & Jane Oitzinger Fund
Organizations with programs or projects that work to enhance the green spaces and parks in our community, or that address climate change at a local level are encouraged to submit a grant application to the Doug & Jane Oitzinger Fund.

Join us for our 16th Annual Tailgate Party & Auctions to be held Friday, October 17th at the Pullman House, N2190 US Highway 41, Menominee, MI. Our emcee for the evening is Bill Michaels and our guest speaker is Blaise Winter. Bill is a renowned sports talk radio host. Blaise was a fan favorite while he played in Green Bay, Indianapolis and San Diego. After the NFL, Blaise determined the best way for him to “give back” was for him to share his story.
