As part of our 2016 Strategic Plan, the Community Foundation for Muskegon County’s Board of Trustees charted a bold course that is now guiding our community engagement, leadership and grantmaking priorities. Three new goals provide the infrastructure for our work and we look for grant requests that are built around one or more of them:
Hope and opportunity for youth
Empowering our youth to have aspirations for a bright future and creating opportunities for them to realize their dreams.
Collaborative community goals and decision making
Supporting active partnerships that are working together sharing power, resources, and decision-making for the common good.
An inclusive community
Building a welcoming, accepting community that respects difference and actively promotes full participation by all people; a place where everyone has the opportunity to share their voice, to participate in decisions that affect their lives, and to have access to all the community has to offer.
