Grand Blanc Community Fund

The Grand Blanc Community Fund supports a broad area of interests including arts and culture, community development, health and human services, and recreation. A local advisory committee meets throughout the year to review grant applications and advise funding to nonprofits exclusively benefiting the Grand Blanc area.

The Grand Blanc Community Fund was established in 1989 with $343,343 in assets from the former Grand Blanc Community Foundation. Ezra Perry led an effort in 1968 to create a permanent endowment for the community. Ezra Perry would be pleased that the Grand Blanc Community Fund he founded has remained solidly focused on its mission to “enhance the well-being and well-doing’ of the citizens living there.
