The Grand Traverse Regional Community Foundation began in 1992 when a group of community champions came together around a vision to give back to our five-county region then, now, and forever.

This vision lives on within our organization today as we continue supporting a variety of community need areas, including youth, arts and culture, education, environment, and health and human services.

We do this by promoting giving, engaging in collaborative leadership, supporting nonprofit organizations through meaningful grants and local students through scholarships, and building endowments that make a lasting impact for generations to come.

To date, we have received more than $123 million in gifts and awarded over $65.7 million in grants and scholarships.
