The Tuuri Health Fund is the Community Foundation’s unrestricted source for grants in health. Assets for this Fund were established in 1988 when the Flint Area Health Foundation merged with the Flint Public Trust to form the Community Foundation of Greater Flint. The Charles Stewart Mott Foundation provided the primary organizational support.

Arthur L. Tuuri, M.D., for whom the Fund is named, served as the first president of the Community Foundation. A trusted leader and advocate for quality health care, Dr. Tuuri’s legacy for a healthier community lives through the Tuuri Health Fund’s annual grantmaking.

  • Current or emerging problems in community health
