Community Foundation of Greater Flint



Established in 1988 through the merger of The Flint Public Trust, founded in 1950, and the Flint Area Health Foundation, created in 1978, the resulting Community Foundation combined the strengths of these two Flint institutions to position itself for future growth and giving. Since the merger, assets have grown from $10 million to more than $87 million. Over 10,000 contributors ranging from modest to magnificent means have enabled the Community Foundation to award more than $75 million in grants to the greater Flint area from over 350 charitable funds.

Grants that Encourage Openness in Philanthropy

There is a new, seven-foundation partnership established that support nonprofits to become more effective and engaged. The Fund for Shared Insight has announced its first round of grants, which are intended “to encourage and incorporate feedback from the people the social sector seeks to help; understand the connection between feedback and better results; foster more openness between and among foundations and grantees; and share lessons.”
