Summer of Sharing Gives Help and Hope to 60 Michigan Nonprofit Organizations

PLYMOUTH, Mich. - Early this summer, Community Financial Credit Union asked its members “What GOOD could you do with $1,000?” and received many inspiring answers.  This year’s Summer of Sharing program made dreams come true for 60 nonprofit organizations in Michigan, providing help and hope for local residents and improving the quality of life in communities served by Community Financial in southeastern and northern Michigan.

This is the third year Community Financial has conducted Summer of Sharing, which provides one grant of $1,000 each day for 60 days to nonprofit organizations in its service areas.  Since the program began in 2011, Community Financial has donated more than $180,000 to groups that help people of all ages improve their lives.  Community Financial members are asked to nominate locate organizations for the $1,000 grants.
“Our members are actively involved in the community and we want to support the charities that are important to them” said Bill Lawton, Community Financial president and CEO.  Community Financial is committed to donating time and money in the areas where it serves members in southeastern and northern Michigan.
One example is the Miracle League in Plymouth, which provides volunteers and special facilities to help young people play baseball, regardless of their physical or mental challenges.  Other grant recipients include organizations devoted to soldiers and veterans; nature and environmental education; arts, culture and historic preservation; youth services and recreation; animal safety and shelters; education; families in need; and individuals coping with disabilities and illness.  Examples of these nonprofit grant recipients include:
  • Humble Design
  • Rouge Education Project
  • Livonia Jaycees / Webster Elementary School
  • Foster Closet of Michigan Western Wayne
  • Detroit Area Diaper Bank
  • DTE Energy Farm (Garden for Gleaners Food Bank)
