Community Endowment Fund

The Community Endowment Fund is a collection of permanent, undesignated (or broadly directed) endowment funds, the income from which supports annual grants for the enrichment of local communities. Donors to the Community Enrichment Fund understand that this is a permanent and flexible way to ensure their donations are used where the needs and opportunities are greatest.

All donations received by the Sanilac County Community Foundation that are not designated for a particular fund, are placed into the Community Endowment Fund. The funds are then used to support grants that improve and enrich the lives of County residents. Grants are distributed 2 times per year. More information can be found on our Grants page.

Steps for Success Fund

The mission of the fund is to help even the playing field for all Sanilac County children. It is recognized that some children, through no fault of their own, find themselves in circumstances that do more to prevent success than to encourage it. The goal of the fund is to help maximize the life potential of these children. The fund accomplishes this by providing grant monies to quality programs designed to give these children a step up.
