Year End2


Great things are happening at the Bay Harbor Foundation.  We are working hard at making an impact on the immediate needs in our community.  One of our goals is to care for our neighbors, and with your generous support we are doing just that.  If you’re not already a part of the great things that happening here at the Foundation, we hope that you will support us by contributing to our Year-End Giving Campaign.

Every donation is so vitally important to our work in the community, and here is what our nonprofit partners are saying about the impact that we are having:

“We are deeply grateful for the 2016 grant we received from the Bay Harbor Foundation for our women and children’s shelter program.  Each dollar given helps to provide food and lodging for our shelter guests, but more importantly those dollars are an investment in the lives of those we serve, and your generous investment is producing amazing dividends.”  – Michael Walker, the Executive Director of The Nehemiah Project

“The Bay Harbor Foundation’s generosity has made a difference in the physical and emotional wellbeing of so many children and teens.  I thank you so very much for all your support of our Child Bereavement Program.”  – Vivian A. LeGrand, Clinical Nurse and Licensed-Board Certified Professional Counselor

“We are so thankful to the Bay Harbor Foundation for your support and generosity. Without the continued support we receive from the individuals and organizations in our local community, such as the Bay Harbor Foundation, we would not be able to provide hardworking and deserving families a safe, decent, and affordable place to call home.” - Eden Haven, the Development Coordinator for Northwest Michigan Habitat for Humanity


By coming together, we are able to share the compassionate and caring spirit of our Bay Harbor Community with all of Northern Michigan.  Please join us as we celebrate these achievements, as we are working every day to meet the needs of our neighbors and touch lives with tremendous acts of giving.

Best Wishes for a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season
