Together We Can Do More

The Petoskey-Harbor Springs Area Community Foundation serves as a connector, partner, collaborator and resource to fuel the power of community for the greater good. Since 1992, we have been helping generous donors and innovative nonprofits come together to create positive change in Emmet County.

Today, as our community faces the COVID-19 crisis, we have established relief funding through our Essential Needs Fund to support local organizations experiencing financial hardship in their operations due to the crisis.

If your eligible nonprofit organization (including educational, governmental or faith-based organizations) serving residents of Emmet County has been impacted by increased demand for services or financial hardship due to lost revenue, you can apply for relief funds here.

The Community Foundation is pleased to partner with Rotary Charities of Traverse City to connect nonprofits serving Emmet County with a network of specialists for a FREE phone or video consultation. Rotary Charities formed its COVID-19 Crisis Support Team to assist you with challenges including fund development, federal aid, communications, financials, technology, remote work, or human resources Consultations will be offered on a first-come, first serve basis. Based on availability, up to five one-hour consultations will be provided per organization. Visit Rotary Charities’ website to learn more and to register.
