Get started. Donate now.





There are many passions in our village – the education of our youth, public safety, and the health and wellbeing of residents, just to name a few. At Saginaw Community Foundation, we are uniquely positioned to connect donors, just like you, to the causes you are most passionate about.

Since 1984, because of the contributions of individuals, families and local businesses, we have been able to support hundreds of organizations, and those organizations have helped support thousands of individuals across Saginaw County. We’re a place where diverse interests and different voices come together to make real change happen, for good, for ever.


By choosing to support your community foundation, you’ll make it possible for us to:

• Support critical emergency needs by assisting with public health initiatives (COVID-19 Pandemic, mental health, opioid addiction, etc.) and natural disasters like the flood of 2020 in Saginaw County


• Be a leader in our village by convening groups and individuals to share resources, talents and visions to reach common goals – neighbor helping neighbor


• Invest in projects in our village that will generate positive social returns


• Provide grants to help fund projects and initiatives here in Saginaw County – a $45 million impact since 1984


• Award nearly 700 scholarships annually for post-secondary education


• Guide young philanthropists via FORCE, our youth advisory council


• Offer our Youth First After School Program – a valuable resource for children and parents, especially during this challenging education environment



Now is the time to come together and support your village. Local folks helping create opportunities right here in Saginaw County. Your gift – regardless of size – will be a statement of support and belief in our ongoing mission to fulfill donor wishes and enable community initiatives to come to life, now and forever.
