For the good of us all.

At the Community Foundation for Muskegon County (CFMC), we collaborate with donors, grantees, advisors and individuals to identify issues that are important to our communities. By bringing people together around a common mission and creating links between resources and your vision for the future, we help to ensure that our communities remain vital and strong.

Every year, we award grants and scholarships that benefit students, youth, education, the arts, community development, the environment, health and human services, and emerging community needs. Projects we’ve supported, such as the Boys & Girls Club of the Muskegon Lakeshore, Muskegon Farmers Market, Muskegon Covenant Academy, Downtown Redevelopment, saving the Frauenthal Center for the Performing Arts, the Muskegon Promise, HEALTHY Muskegon and so many more, continue to enhance life throughout Muskegon County.

The Community Foundation for Muskegon County is a nonprofit, qualified 501(c)(3) organization.

We’re Part of the Community We Serve
As residents of the broader Muskegon County community, our Board members and staff have knowledge, understanding and insight into our community and its concerns. Highly engaged as residents and volunteers, they serve in leadership roles in community organizations, and are often called upon to lead community gatherings or new initiatives.

The Generosity of Our Donors
Our work is only possible because of generous donors who share our love for this community. Whether it’s an unexpected $2 million bequest or a small, year-end donation, every gift makes a difference. By carefully investing these gifts for growth, we’re able to continue making grants that provide a lasting, positive impact on our community.
