Give today to the Davison Community Fund and support homegrown philanthropy in the areas of education, health and human services, community development, and recreation.

A local advisory committee meets throughout the year to review grant applications and advise funding to nonprofits that exclusively benefit the City of Davison, Davison Township, and Richfield Township.

In 2004, three community leaders were the driving force behind the establishment of the Davison Community Fund: Tim Elkins, Robert Callis, and Pete Auger. Recognizing the need to develop a permanent endowment to benefit the Davison area, they asked others to join the advisory committee and raised seed money to help establish the Fund.
