Caring for Our Neighbors and Our Community

On March 21, a letter was sent to update our members and donors on the COVID-19 crisis in the Little Traverse Bay Community. On March 22, the Health Department of Northwest Michigan announced the first two cases of COVID-19 in our region. On March 23, Michigan went on lockdown for three weeks. Events have evolved rapidly in Michigan and throughout the country, and this pandemic has created great uncertainty.

In the midst of this crisis, the Bay Harbor Foundation is working to respond to the immediate needs of the community.  We have been asked to be part of a leadership team spearheading the response of area charitable organizations to the pandemic, and we have set up a relief fund to ensure that the most vulnerable members of our community have the support they need.

Meanwhile, we are also making plans for our summer events in hopes that the pandemic will be behind us. Invitations to the Bay Harbor Vintage Car and Boat Festival, the Bay Harbor-Boyne Pro-Am Golf Tournament, and our Annual Baynanza Dinner are going out in the mail, and we hope you can join us for these special fundraising events.We hope you are staying healthy and safe, and we look forward to seeing all of you in Bay Harbor this Summer!
