dear friends<br />

Did you ever wonder what the difference between possible<br />

and impossible is? Of course, there are the laws <strong>of</strong> physics,<br />

but beyond that it just seems to be a matter <strong>of</strong> will.<br />

Is there the personal or collective will to make something<br />

happen...or not?<br />

So much <strong>of</strong> what happens in life is not inevitable.<br />

It is because <strong>of</strong> will … because somebody or a group<br />

<strong>of</strong> somebodies “willed” something into existence.<br />

This annual report is a beautiful depiction <strong>of</strong> the kind<br />

<strong>of</strong> will that is transforming our community, day in<br />

and day out. We are sharing a few stories that depict<br />

a much broader pattern <strong>of</strong> what is happening in our<br />

community … from folks in neighborhoods like those<br />

involved in our Neighborhoods Small Grants Program,<br />

to large, complex systems like the GISD’s “SKIP to a<br />

Great Start.” People, with the help <strong>of</strong> the resources<br />

made available by donors <strong>of</strong> the <strong>Community</strong> <strong>Foundation</strong>,<br />

are “willing” a better community into existence.<br />

For sure, our community faces monumental challenges.<br />

However, as long as people like Kathryn Lobban, Cornelia<br />

Norton, Bill and Pam Costabile, Frances Price, Bill<br />

and Kitty Moeller and Kim and Ginger Virkler continue<br />

to give gifts that are structured to be here forever (is<br />

it coincidental that it’s called “a will”?), we’ll have what<br />

it takes to meet those challenges face to face and make<br />

progress, no matter how staggering the odds at any<br />

one point in time.<br />

That’s why we’ve chosen the theme “Mission Possible.”<br />

Our daily experience <strong>of</strong> the generosity <strong>of</strong> area residents<br />

and the commitment and expertise <strong>of</strong> area nonpr<strong>of</strong>its<br />

tackling the toughest issues convince us that, indeed,<br />

our mission <strong>of</strong> building a strong community by engaging<br />

people in philanthropy is possible. Thanks for<br />

“willing” it so!<br />

For good. For ever.<br />

Kathi Horton, President<br />

Sherri Stephens, Board <strong>of</strong> Trustees Chair<br />


<strong>2010</strong> new funds<br />

Our mission is possible when generous individuals include the<br />

William and Kathryn Moeller<br />

Kitty is a former chair and current member <strong>of</strong> the<br />

<strong>Flint</strong> Women and Girls Fund Advisory Committee.<br />

to support the <strong>Flint</strong> Women and Girls Fund.<br />

Kim and Ginger Virkler<br />

Kim’s long-term service on the Fenton <strong>Community</strong><br />

Fund Advisory Committee convinced him <strong>of</strong> the<br />

importance <strong>of</strong> building the community’s endowment.<br />

Together with wife Ginger, the Virklers named the<br />

<strong>Community</strong> <strong>Foundation</strong> as a designated beneficiary<br />

<strong>of</strong> their Individual Retirement Account (IRA). The Fund<br />

supports trail development in the South Lakes region.<br />

In Memory <strong>of</strong> George Allen and Adabeth Cook<br />

Legacy Society members George Allen “Al” and<br />

Adabeth Cook were married nearly 70 years when<br />

they both passed away in <strong>2010</strong>. George worked as<br />

an accountant for AC Spark Plug for 36 years. The<br />

couple enjoyed travel, especially taking train trips<br />

throughout North America with their family. Both<br />

cared deeply about our community.<br />

The Cooks created a charitable gift annuity,<br />

naming the <strong>Community</strong> <strong>Foundation</strong> as beneficiary.<br />

Upon their death, the G. Allen and Adabeth<br />

Cook Fund was established to support general<br />

operations <strong>of</strong> the <strong>Community</strong> <strong>Foundation</strong>.<br />


Mission:<br />


When parents, children and teachers play together, they learn<br />

together. Early intervention programs like SKIP to a Great Start<br />

Parent-Child Playgroups foster academic success.<br />

SKIP is a program <strong>of</strong> the Genesee Intermediate School District<br />

(GISD). The <strong>Community</strong> <strong>Foundation</strong> was an early supporter<br />

<strong>of</strong> the initiative, awarding a $20,000 grant to buy books for<br />

SKIP playgroups located in 21 local school districts.<br />

“Playgroups give parents and children the opportunity to learn<br />

together while playing, interacting and having fun,” said Gloria<br />

Bourdon, Director <strong>of</strong> Health, Safety and Nutrition at GISD.<br />

“Hundreds <strong>of</strong> parents and children have been impacted by the<br />

SKIP program and we’re starting to realize academic results.”<br />

Bourdon noted that an analysis shows that student performance on<br />

the MEAP tests in reading, English and math is directly correlated<br />

to the number <strong>of</strong> contact hours experienced in home visits and<br />

playgroups.<br />

“As the number <strong>of</strong> program contacts with parents and children<br />

increased through home visits and playgroups, so did the MEAP<br />

scores <strong>of</strong> children,” Bourdon said.<br />

Health and nutrition is also stressed during playgroup activity, as<br />

well as during home visits. Children need to be healthy to be ready<br />

to learn in kindergarten, Bourdon said. For this to happen, children<br />

need healthy role models through their parents.<br />

Successful Kids = Involved Parents (SKIP) has built a successful<br />

network <strong>of</strong> support for pre-school children through services that<br />

support children and their parents.<br />

Care TO FamILIeS<br />


Being out <strong>of</strong> work is tough enough. Being a diabetic<br />

without means to pay for insulin can mean the<br />

difference between life and death.<br />

Enter the Genesee Health Plan (GHP), a nationallyrecognized<br />

nonpr<strong>of</strong>it health plan that provides over<br />

25,000 members with doctor visits, cancer screenings,<br />

prescription drugs, X-rays and more.<br />

“We save lives every day,” said Linda Hamacher, President<br />

and Chief Executive Officer. “Many <strong>of</strong> our members<br />

are really sick with diabetes, cancer and heart<br />

disease. Others are able to avoid serious ailments by<br />

working with our staff on preventive care issues and<br />

learning how to lead healthier lives. In both respects,<br />

we are providing life-saving coverage for the uninsured<br />

in our community, and that ultimately benefits everyone<br />

in Genesee County,”<br />

In 2005, the <strong>Community</strong> <strong>Foundation</strong> partnered with<br />

the Charles Stewart Mott <strong>Foundation</strong> and the Ruth<br />

Mott <strong>Foundation</strong> to provide funding for an infrastructure<br />

to create a quality health plan for low income<br />

individuals in our community. The infusion <strong>of</strong> capital<br />

dollars helped leverage other federal and state funding.<br />

“Because <strong>of</strong> the grantmaking, we were able to expand<br />

services and design an amazing disease management<br />

tracking system so we know that our patient’s health<br />

is improving,” Hamacher said.<br />

• Since 2005, emergency room visits by people<br />

enrolled in the plan are down 51 percent<br />

• Mammograms and preventive screenings for<br />

women have quadrupled.<br />

• Healthy behaviors such as exercise and a healthy<br />

diet have improved by 57 percent<br />

• About 89 percent <strong>of</strong> diabetes patients have<br />

improved their self-management.<br />

• The number <strong>of</strong> uninsured children is down<br />

by 25 percent.<br />

GHP is the central location in this community where<br />

people find out how to get help with their health care.<br />

“We connect people with the help they need to live<br />

longer and more productive lives,” Hamacher said.<br />

FrOm GOOD TO GreaT<br />

Area nonpr<strong>of</strong>it leaders have strengthened their<br />

organization’s mission, learned new skills and<br />

benefitted from technology enhancements through<br />

the BEST Project. BEST stands for Building<br />

Excellence, Sustainability and Trust in the Nonpr<strong>of</strong>it<br />

Sector. The project has been funded by the<br />

<strong>Community</strong> <strong>Foundation</strong>, the Charles Stewart Mott<br />

<strong>Foundation</strong>, Ruth Mott <strong>Foundation</strong> and United Way<br />

<strong>of</strong> Genesee County since its formation in 2003.<br />

Leadership coaching, board development, staff training<br />

and access to a consulting pool for special projects<br />

have helped nonpr<strong>of</strong>it leaders look at their organizations<br />

in a new way. The project is one <strong>of</strong> the <strong>Community</strong><br />

<strong>Foundation</strong>’s largest grantmaking investments.<br />

“After only one session with my leadership coach,<br />

I could tell that I would benefit from this opportunity,”<br />

said Mona Sahouri, Executive Director <strong>of</strong> the Arab<br />

American Heritage Council. “The economic situation<br />

in Genesee County has created an increased demand<br />

for services. Organizations will not be able to step up<br />

to the plate if we don’t develop the leadership.”<br />

Evaluation <strong>of</strong> BEST shows that nonpr<strong>of</strong>it leaders<br />

have cited leadership gains including:<br />

• Staff leaders’ ability to think and act<br />

strategically<br />

• Board engagement has increased from<br />

40% to 80%<br />

• Individuals have dropped <strong>of</strong>f boards in ways<br />

that have made the board stronger<br />

• Better alignment <strong>of</strong> program goals,<br />

communicating mission and vision and<br />

conducting effective planning<br />

“The ongoing investment in the BEST Project has<br />

enabled us to serve more than 70 Genesee County<br />

nonpr<strong>of</strong>its,” said Jennifer Acree, Director <strong>of</strong> Programs.<br />

“Participating agencies show marked improvement<br />

in key leadership and management areas and have<br />

changed the way they think about the future <strong>of</strong><br />

their organizations.”<br />

Neighbors fondly remember Ann Hester as a go-getter who<br />

cared deeply about her neighborhood and block club — the<br />

Odette, Witherbee, Iroquois Restoration Association. Ann<br />

served as block club president for many years. She was also<br />

instrumental in building a flower garden on a vacant lot at<br />

the corner <strong>of</strong> Mason and Odette Streets.<br />

When Ann passed away <strong>of</strong> cancer two years ago, the flower<br />

garden floundered. “We wanted to honor her memory and<br />

make a memorial garden for Ann,” said Dennis Jackson,<br />

block club member.<br />

To accomplish this, Jackson applied for a small grant through<br />

the Neighborhoods Small Grants Program (NSGP) program<br />

<strong>of</strong> the <strong>Community</strong> <strong>Foundation</strong>. The raised flower bed is now<br />

a beautiful tribute to Ann Hester’s memory.<br />

The NSGP was established in 1993 through a grant by the<br />

Charles Stewart Mott <strong>Foundation</strong>. Nearly $175,000 in small<br />

grants have been made to support a number <strong>of</strong> projects that<br />

bring communities together to create positive change. Some<br />

examples include:<br />

• Welcome packets developed by the Washington<br />

Neighborhood Association<br />

• Neighborhood watch signage, lights and radios<br />

for the University Park Homeowners Association<br />

• Park maintenance, benches and signage for<br />

Stockton Center at Spring Grove.<br />

When neighbors come together to beautify their homes,<br />

blocks and neighborhoods, they find common ground and<br />

build relationships. Now that’s positive change!<br />

Preparing the memorial garden in memory <strong>of</strong> Ann Hester are Dennis Jackson, Dorothy Tippins, and Cora and Alex Pitts<br />

A Fresh Look at Women<br />

and Girls Issues<br />

Throughout history women have demonstrated<br />

amazing strength and tenacity in overcoming<br />

challenges and working to better their lives and<br />

those <strong>of</strong> their families. Today in Genesee County,<br />

many women and girls find it hard to achieve their<br />

full potential because they are struggling to meet<br />

their most basic needs.<br />

The Status <strong>of</strong> Women and Girls in Genesee County,<br />

a research report published by the <strong>Flint</strong> Women<br />

and Girls Fund <strong>of</strong> the <strong>Community</strong> <strong>Foundation</strong><br />

<strong>of</strong> <strong>Greater</strong> <strong>Flint</strong>, examines the issues facing women<br />

and girls in our community. The report focuses<br />

on three primary areas affecting women and girls<br />

in Genesee County: economic security, health<br />

and well-being, and education.<br />

fAst fActs<br />

The <strong>Flint</strong> Women and Girls Fund Advisory Committee<br />

seeks to shine a light on these issues and encourages<br />

you and others to become involved in developing a<br />

call to action.<br />

What can you do? Here are a few ideas to inspire<br />

your thinking:<br />

• Educate yourself. Visit www.cfgf.org and click on<br />

the Women and Girls Fund link. Read the report<br />

and the “Voices <strong>of</strong> Women” narratives posted<br />

online.<br />

• Educate others. Request a presentation be made<br />

to your civic or church group by calling the<br />

<strong>Community</strong> <strong>Foundation</strong> at 767-8270.<br />

• Make a gift. The <strong>Flint</strong> Women and Girls Fund<br />

makes grants to organizations serving women<br />

and girls.<br />

The purpose <strong>of</strong> the<br />

<strong>Flint</strong> Women and Girls<br />

Fund is to encourage<br />

the advancement and<br />

full participation<br />

<strong>of</strong> women and girls<br />

in society by<br />

promoting the removal<br />

<strong>of</strong> barriers to their<br />

economic, educational,<br />

physical, emotional,<br />

social, artistic,<br />

and personal growth.<br />

Manal and Ghassan Saab<br />

Well-Deserved Recognition<br />

for Local Philanthropists<br />

Ghassan and Manal Saab <strong>of</strong> Fenton are the<br />

recipients <strong>of</strong> the <strong>2010</strong> Russell G. Mawby Award<br />

for Philanthropy. Nominated by the <strong>Community</strong><br />

<strong>Foundation</strong> <strong>of</strong> <strong>Greater</strong> <strong>Flint</strong>, the Saabs are the first<br />

Genesee County residents, and the first immigrants,<br />

to receive the Mawby Award, Michigan’s most<br />

prestigious philanthropy award.<br />

For the Saabs, philanthropy is a personal commitment<br />

born <strong>of</strong> a value system that believes in “giving<br />

back and paying forward.” Through the Ghassan<br />

and Manal Saab <strong>Foundation</strong>, the Saabs have<br />

made grants to strengthen organizations including<br />

the United Way <strong>of</strong> Genesee County, Crim Fitness<br />

<strong>Foundation</strong>, The <strong>Flint</strong> Rotary Charitable <strong>Foundation</strong>,<br />

<strong>Flint</strong> Children’s Museum, Tall Pine Council-Boy<br />

Scouts <strong>of</strong> America, Catholic Charities <strong>of</strong> Shiawassee<br />

and Genesee Counties, American Arab Heritage<br />

Council, Arab American National Museum in<br />

Dearborn, <strong>Flint</strong> Institute <strong>of</strong> Music, <strong>Flint</strong> Institute<br />

<strong>of</strong> Arts, the Center for Arab American Philanthropy<br />

and University <strong>of</strong> Michigan-<strong>Flint</strong>.<br />

“For years Ghassan and Manal have contributed<br />

generous gifts that have made an important difference<br />

in the lives <strong>of</strong> many, many people,” said Kathi<br />

Horton, CFGF President. “They give not only<br />

<strong>of</strong> their financial resources but also <strong>of</strong> their time<br />

and talents. They give in ways that have lasting<br />

impact for those who are alive today, and also<br />

for generations yet to come.”<br />

The Mawby Award was established in 1995 upon<br />

the retirement <strong>of</strong> Dr. Russell G. Mawby from the<br />

Chairmanship and Chief Executive Officer positions<br />

at the W.K. Kellogg <strong>Foundation</strong>. This award honors<br />

the work and philosophy <strong>of</strong> Dr. Mawby and is<br />

awarded annually by the Council <strong>of</strong> Michigan<br />

<strong>Foundation</strong>s and Michigan Nonpr<strong>of</strong>it Association.<br />

Opening Doors for Youth and the Arts<br />

Jean Simi was in the audience when the <strong>Flint</strong> Youth<br />

Theatre premiered The Seventh Dream in April 1996.<br />

The play, which was scripted from the writings <strong>of</strong> 679<br />

<strong>Flint</strong>-area ninth grade students and performed by a<br />

group <strong>of</strong> student actors from the city’s high schools,<br />

so impressed her that she brought it to the attention<br />

<strong>of</strong> her boss, Bill White, the president and CEO <strong>of</strong><br />

the Charles Stewart Mott <strong>Foundation</strong>. With support<br />

from Mott, the play was restaged and ultimately<br />

was performed before the U.S. Congress.<br />

“From that time forward, Jean made it her mission<br />

to bring talented young people — and the organizations<br />

and individuals who gave them the opportunity to<br />

develop those talents — to our attention,” said White,<br />

who in <strong>2010</strong>, created the S. Jean Simi Fund for the Arts<br />

at the <strong>Community</strong> <strong>Foundation</strong> <strong>of</strong> <strong>Greater</strong> <strong>Flint</strong> to honor<br />

her 28 years <strong>of</strong> service as Executive Assistant and<br />

Corporate Assistant Secretary for the <strong>Foundation</strong>.<br />

Discovering programs that help draw out and showcase<br />

the artistic talents <strong>of</strong> students who might otherwise not<br />

have the chance to develop these skills is a source<br />

<strong>of</strong> great satisfaction for Ms. Simi, who plans to advise<br />

grants from the Fund to seed arts activities for underserved<br />

children and young people.<br />

“It’s such a pleasure to see the confidence that a<br />

successful arts experience can give to a child or<br />

teenager,” said Ms. Simi. “I hope this Fund will help<br />

encourage those experiences for years to come.”<br />

A Gift that Keeps Giving<br />

On a warm July evening, guests were mingling on<br />

Randee Pieper’s patio in Flushing, enjoying refreshments<br />

and anticipating the arrival <strong>of</strong> the birthday girl —<br />

Gloria VanDuyne. It was Gloria’s birthday and her<br />

family and friends had a surprise in store for the local<br />

businesswoman, art lover and philanthropist.<br />

A few months prior, Randee and VSA-Michigan Director<br />

Lora Frankel wanted to do something special to honor<br />

Gloria, a supporter <strong>of</strong> VSA’s arts programs in Genesee<br />

County schools. A Fund was established in her honor,<br />

and friends and family were invited to contribute to the<br />

Fund in lieu <strong>of</strong> gifts.<br />

Greeted by a chorus <strong>of</strong> “Surprise!” and “Happy<br />

Birthday,” Gloria listened as Randee told the story<br />

<strong>of</strong> her experiences with VSA-Michigan, a statewide<br />

organization dedicated to bringing art and music<br />

to youth with disabilities. The retired Clio Area Schools<br />

special education teacher mentioned that through<br />

Gloria’s support, hundreds <strong>of</strong> children with disabilities<br />

were introduced to the arts in her classroom.<br />

“I hope you know the impact you have made<br />

on the lives <strong>of</strong> very special children from all corners<br />

<strong>of</strong> Genesee County,” commented Kathi Horton,<br />

<strong>Community</strong> <strong>Foundation</strong> President. “So in honor<br />

<strong>of</strong> your commitment and leadership to Very Special<br />

Arts in Genesee County, I am pleased to announce<br />

the establishment <strong>of</strong> the Gloria MacArthur VanDuyne<br />

Fund for Very Special Arts!”<br />

The endowment will provide opportunities for individuals<br />

with disabilities in Genesee County to participate<br />

in, learn through, excel in and enjoy the arts.<br />

Fay and Terry Latture<br />

Establish a Fund in Lieu <strong>of</strong> Gifts<br />

If you’ve lived in the Clio area even for a short time,<br />

chances are you’ve met Fay and Terry Latture, lifelong<br />

residents whose lives have centered around supporting<br />

their community. Fay worked as an education administrator<br />

for 36 years, is a member <strong>of</strong> the Clio Area <strong>Community</strong><br />

Fund Advisory Committee and the Clio Area Education<br />

<strong>Foundation</strong>. Terry, a Delphi Corporation retiree, has been<br />

actively involved with the Clio Youth Sports Complex and<br />

several hunting and fishing organizations.<br />

When Fay retired from her position as Clio Area Schools<br />

Superintendent, she and Terry made a decision that would<br />

ensure their ability to give back to the community well into<br />

the future by establishing the Latture Family Fund <strong>of</strong> the<br />

<strong>Community</strong> <strong>Foundation</strong> <strong>of</strong> <strong>Greater</strong> <strong>Flint</strong>. The couple feels<br />

strongly about the need to give back, and finds the <strong>Community</strong><br />

<strong>Foundation</strong> an excellent vehicle to do that in a meaningful<br />

and lasting way.<br />

“We asked people to contribute to the Fund in lieu <strong>of</strong><br />

presents,” says Fay.<br />

Not surprisingly, having been involved with education<br />

throughout their lives, Fay and Terry have designated the<br />

Fund to support student educational field trips for Clio-area<br />

students.<br />

“Field trips allow kids to experience things first hand, which<br />

is a great way to help them learn,” says Fay. “We have a lot<br />

to do in Michigan that is relatively close-by, including visits<br />

to the state capitol, Greenfield Village, museums, theatres<br />

and other cultural organizations.<br />

“I think benevolence is really important,” Fay continues.<br />

“I feel very blessed that if you give through the <strong>Foundation</strong>,<br />

it keeps on giving.”<br />

A Legacy <strong>of</strong> Helping Others<br />

When two retired educators passed away in <strong>2010</strong>, the community became one <strong>of</strong> their beneficiaries.<br />

Their personal missions to leave a lasting legacy were outlined in their wills.<br />

Kathryn Faner Lobban spent her career in the <strong>Flint</strong> Public Schools, teaching music, speech, drama and<br />

children’s literature to elementary students. She rose through the ranks and served as principal at three<br />

elementary schools, a big accomplishment for a woman in the 1940s. She loved <strong>Flint</strong>, her students, and<br />

was an active member <strong>of</strong> First Presbyterian Church and the St. Cecilia Society <strong>of</strong> <strong>Flint</strong> Institute <strong>of</strong> Music<br />

(FIM). The Kathryn Faner Lobban Fund will benefit the <strong>Flint</strong> Institute <strong>of</strong> Music.<br />

“Kathryn led the way for women throughout her life, initially by being the first woman to receive a degree<br />

from the Michigan State University Music School, and then later as a principal in the <strong>Flint</strong> Schools,” said<br />

Paul Torre, FIM President and CEO. “She cared deeply for children and their music education and dedicated<br />

her life for them.”<br />

Cornelia (Corry) Norton pursued her higher education at <strong>Flint</strong> Junior College, later transferring to the<br />

University <strong>of</strong> Michigan’s Ann Arbor campus. She earned a teaching degree and began a 41-year career<br />

as a mathematics teacher and department supervisor at <strong>Flint</strong> Central High School. She loved travel,<br />

especially to Europe, and spent one year teaching at an American military base in Germany.<br />

She was proud to be a <strong>Flint</strong> resident and generously supported the community through gifts to the<br />

<strong>Flint</strong> Institute <strong>of</strong> Music, the <strong>Community</strong> <strong>Foundation</strong> and the <strong>Flint</strong> Cultural Center Corporation. The Cornelia<br />

Norton Fund provides tutoring services for underprivileged children in our community.<br />

Children create memory boats at Camp Copneconic<br />

<strong>Community</strong> Hospice <strong>Foundation</strong> Fund<br />

At dusk on the shores <strong>of</strong> Lake Copneconic in Fenton,<br />

children attending Camp Brave Hearts prepare to launch<br />

a boat, handcrafted earlier in the day during craft time.<br />

One by one, with feet balanced in the sand, they are invited<br />

to come forward and say something about their lost loved<br />

one. A candle is lit and the boat is sent <strong>of</strong>f in the Memory<br />

Boat Launch ceremony.<br />

That’s one <strong>of</strong> the highlights <strong>of</strong> Camp Brave Hearts, a grief<br />

support weekend provided by Genesys Hospice. Over 60<br />

children and adults participate in the annual camp held<br />

each year at Camp Copneconic. Group discussions, craft<br />

time and fun activities keep participants busy all weekend.<br />

In this serene, natural environment, children are able to<br />

connect with each other, share their stories and learn that<br />

they are not alone in their grief. Children ages 6-18 who<br />

have experienced the loss <strong>of</strong> a parent, grandparent or<br />

friend are invited to attend Camp Brave Hearts.<br />

“The older kids will tell us that they didn’t realize how much<br />

they needed this experience,” said Hank Messing, Camp<br />

Brave Hearts Coordinator. “Some say they didn’t want to<br />

come, but they’re glad they did.”<br />

Camp Brave Hearts is an example <strong>of</strong> the type <strong>of</strong> program<br />

to be funded by the newly established <strong>Community</strong> Hospice<br />

<strong>Foundation</strong> Fund at the <strong>Community</strong> <strong>Foundation</strong>.<br />

“It’s always a good feeling leaving here and knowing we<br />

made a difference,” Messing added.<br />

Encouraging Homegrown Philanthropy<br />

Five communities have established endowed “<strong>Community</strong><br />

Funds” through the <strong>Community</strong> <strong>Foundation</strong> to provide a<br />

permanent source <strong>of</strong> funding for projects that enhance<br />

quality <strong>of</strong> life. The Clio, Davison, Fenton, Flushing and<br />

Grand Blanc <strong>Community</strong> Funds are guided by local advisory<br />

committees. Volunteers review grant proposals, identify<br />

emerging community needs, and design ways to build<br />

the endowment.<br />

Understanding unmet needs <strong>of</strong> the community was the<br />

focus for the Grand Blanc and Fenton <strong>Community</strong> Funds<br />

this year. The Hometown <strong>Community</strong> Conversations<br />

project was designed to deepen the advisory committees’<br />

understanding <strong>of</strong> community needs. Over 80 individuals<br />

including donors, business leaders, youth, government<br />

<strong>of</strong>ficials and representatives from civic groups, faith-based<br />

and educational institutions participated.<br />

Focus groups were held to inform the Advisory Committees’<br />

work in three areas: grantmaking, asset development and<br />

community leadership. Through the process we learned:<br />

• There is a lack <strong>of</strong> awareness about the <strong>Community</strong><br />

Fund, including its process for grantmaking or the<br />

guidelines for requesting a grant<br />

• Donors are seeking more opportunities to give<br />

• The Fund could play a role in bringing together<br />

government entities and citizens around a particular<br />

need or project<br />

In Fenton, the most commonly-discussed unmet need<br />

included economic development, downtown revitalization,<br />

and creating entertainment and employment opportunities<br />

for youth.<br />

Unmet needs in Grand Blanc centered on cooperation<br />

between city and township government, economic development,<br />

creating entertainment and employment opportunities<br />

for youth, and providing for the needs <strong>of</strong> people who<br />

are suffering economic hardship.<br />

<strong>Community</strong> Funds encourage homegrown philanthropy,<br />

engaging each generation <strong>of</strong> residents in making a<br />

difference that will continue far into the future.<br />

YACers prepare for a volunteer<br />

Understanding Needs <strong>of</strong> Youth<br />

For nearly 20 years the <strong>Community</strong> <strong>Foundation</strong> has been<br />

working with groups <strong>of</strong> area high school students interested<br />

in making a difference. The Youth Advisory Committees<br />

(YACs) are comprised <strong>of</strong> students from across Genesee<br />

County. They meet regularly, review grant proposals<br />

and community service opportunities, and learn about<br />

giving back.<br />

This year the YACs conducted a youth needs survey,<br />

a best practice promoted by the Council <strong>of</strong> Michigan<br />

<strong>Foundation</strong>s. YACers distributed the survey link using<br />

Facebook and other online social networking sites.<br />

Paper surveys were distributed at school and other<br />

social gatherings where youth were present.<br />

Of the 288 survey responses, the top 3 overall issues<br />

<strong>of</strong> concern for area youth were:<br />

1. Alcohol and substance abuse<br />

2. Teen pregnancy and<br />

3. Family and personal problems<br />

What’s the best way to help youth struggling with these<br />

issues?<br />

1. More programs to help youth<br />

2. More education and awareness about the<br />

consequences <strong>of</strong> dangerous decisions<br />

3. More counseling and therapy for youth.<br />

Finally, the youth identified the ability to talk to their<br />

parents as the most positive influence in their life.<br />

Religious involvement also ranked near the top.<br />

“This data is important because it will help our committee<br />

members when it comes to making grants and when we<br />

look for volunteer opportunities,” said Kelsey Maxwell,<br />

Chair <strong>of</strong> the Countywide YAC. “It also opened our eyes<br />

to some <strong>of</strong> the real issues facing youth in our community.”<br />

Complete Count in <strong>2010</strong> Census<br />

For every community in America, the U.S. Census count<br />

represents power and money – power through adequate<br />

congressional representation and money from $400 billion<br />

in state and federal funding for hospitals, roads, schools<br />

and more. In fact, Genesee County stands to lose about<br />

$1,000 a year for each person missed by the Census.<br />

As a key partner in Census <strong>2010</strong>, the <strong>Community</strong> <strong>Foundation</strong><br />

took a leadership role in bringing together individuals,<br />

organizations and churches that could help spread the<br />

word. The message was simple: “We can’t afford to give<br />

up federal dollars that will improve our quality <strong>of</strong> life. When<br />

we’re not counted, we all lose.”<br />

The goal was to improve the mail response rate from the<br />

2000 Census when the City <strong>of</strong> <strong>Flint</strong> was undercounted by<br />

an estimated 40 percent. Monthly meetings were held at<br />

the <strong>Community</strong> <strong>Foundation</strong> beginning in 2009, ramping<br />

up for the mail-in survey sent in April <strong>2010</strong>.<br />

census <strong>2010</strong><br />

here’s a sampling<br />

<strong>of</strong> the communities<br />

that lost and gained<br />

population in the<br />

<strong>2010</strong> Census.<br />

A variety <strong>of</strong> outreach methods were used to engage the<br />

community in the importance <strong>of</strong> completing the mail-in<br />

survey. Information was shared at meetings, in church<br />

bulletins and through door-to-door campaigns in areas<br />

identified as “hard to count.” Media outreach, special<br />

events and billboards also helped promote the message.<br />

Results are impressive. The mail-in response rate for<br />

Genesee County is 81% and 74% in <strong>Flint</strong>, up from 71%<br />

and 61% respectively in 2000. The County response<br />

rate is well above the 72% national response rate.<br />

“Census data are used for legislative and congressional<br />

redistricting, as well as to determine funding for hospitals,<br />

schools, job training centers, senior centers, roads and<br />

more,” said Lawrence Moon, co-chair <strong>of</strong> the Genesee<br />

County Complete Count Committee. “These improvements<br />

will have a significant impact on the lives <strong>of</strong> everyone in<br />

our community.”<br />
