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.
