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.

As our community faced the COVID-19 crisis, we established relief funding through our Essential Needs Fund to support local organizations experiencing financial hardship in their operations due to the crisis. Thanks to the generosity of our community, we have disbursed nearly $350,000 in COVID-19 relief grants to local nonprofit organizations. View the list of grants awarded to date.

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.

If you would like to support our community with a gift to the Community Foundation, you may make a secure online gift here. Our family of funds address numerous community needs including housing, youth and families, and the environment. Together, with donors like you, we truly can do more.
