In December 2015, Saginaw Community Foundation was awarded a $250,000 grant from the Michigan Health Endowment Fund to support local initiatives that address obesity-related issues for children, adolescents and senior adults in Saginaw County.


Grant funding from Saginaw Community Foundation via the Michigan Health Endowment Fund will help Saginaw County non-profit organizations address obesity-related health issues as a collective. These agencies will use education, opportunity and promotion to achieve the goals outlined here (see right sidebar for details).
