Celebrating 16 Years of Improving the Quality of Life in the Little Traverse Bay Region

Dear Friends of the Bay Harbor Foundation

You are the reason that we have been able to change the lives of so many people in the Little Traverse Bay Region!

The past sixteen years would not have been possible without you and all of our generous and dedicated donors and volunteers who have contributed money, time and talent to help us pursue our mission.

Through your generosity, we have been able to fund 109 nonprofit organizations and 292 college scholarships. Your donations have:

Sheltered homeless mothers and children.
Because your generosity and loving kindness for our neighbors in need kept the doors open at our the area’s only homeless shelters (which receives no government funding), even the most difficult circumstances can bring unexpected hope and joy.

Helped hardworking young men and women achieve a college education.
“Helping to pay for my education is something that is truly irreplaceable. Once again I cannot thank you enough.” - Gabrielle Huhn, 2019 Scholarship Recipient

Provided hospice care to the uninsured.
Support from the Bay Harbor Foundation makes it possible for all patients to receive dignified, expert end-of-life care – regardless of their ability to pay.

Fed children compromised by hunger.
One out of four children in our region need support from the food pantries we fund.

Thank you for everything you have done to make everything that we do possible!

We look forward to working with you to help make lives better and brighter in the Little Traverse Bay Region so that together we can improve the quality of life in the Little Traverse Bay Region now, and for many years to come.
