THE SHELBY COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
Gateway to Giving
The Shelby Community Foundation (SCF) was started in 1996 as a tax exempt IRS 501(c)(3), Michigan non-profit corporation, and is registered with the Michigan Attorney General. It is a publicly supported philanthropic organization with the long term goal of building permanent funds and establishing separate donor funds for their charitable interests to benefit residents in a given area.
A community foundation serves a certain defined geographic area. Since 1996 the SCF has: raised over $1.57million, awarded $117,000 in Scholarships, granted $590,000; and established over $636,000 in endowments for the Shelby Township community.
Unlike other non-profits, a community foundation supports by grant making and is not limited to one interest. The SCF looks to the total community well-being. To illustrate, these are the grants given in the year 2016:
