The Shelby Community Foundation wishes to thank all who attended our October 2018 Women’s Fund luncheon. We were pleased to have a turnout of 150 to hear from our speakers on the Opioid issues facing our community. The foundation was able to give grants totaling $7500 to local organizations fighting this issue, because of the generosity and donations of our community.
We look forward to seeing everyone at the next Women’s Fund luncheon in 2019.
The Luncheon is an Annual Event . . .
Each year the Shelby Community Foundation Women’s Fund has a Luncheon to inform the community about relevant topics. In 2018 the topic was Opioid Addiction. The organizations and people fighting these serious issues need funds, and therefore the Shelby Community Foundation provides grants each year at the luncheon to help with the funding. The Foundation cannot do this alone. Your help is needed so the Foundation can continue being effective with community needs. Please consider a donation at this time. Just choose a Fund in the drop down box below and click on the DONATE button to make the payment. Thank you for your help!
About the Women’s Fund…
The women who stepped up and generously established the Women’s Fund in 2012, wanted a means to enhance the lives of women and children in our community. They wanted to send the message that; “Someone you may never meet, cares about you.”. Through scholarships and community grants, the Women’s Fund is building a unique legacy to improve the lives of women and children now and forever.
The Women’s Fund offers women the opportunity to find their “philanthropic voice”. For more information on the Women’s Fund or to find out how you can help, call the Foundation at 586-909-5305.
The Inaugural Women’s Luncheon was held on November 9, 2012 and featured the Honorable Maura D. Corrigan as the keynote speaker. She was the Director of the Michigan Department of Human Services at the time, and former Michigan Supreme Court Justice.
