New! TOWN Grants

The idea for TOWN Grants came out of the community foundation's desire to have an impact in all of Gladwin County. With the program, all 15 townships in the county are being offered up to $2,000 in matching funds for a public improvement project. Contact program officer Melissa Kesterson at or 989.839.9661 before applying. Grant deadlines are January 15, April 15, July 15, and October 15.

Gladwin County Youth Action Council

The Youth Action Council functions just like the Community Foundation, but it is made up of area middle and high school students.  The grant requirements and application is exactly the same.  Of particular interest to GladYAC are projects that benefit youth.
