Celebrating 15 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 fifteen years would not have been possible without you and 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 108 nonprofit organizations

and 286 college scholarships. Your donations have:

Fed children compromised by hunger.
One out of four children in our region need support from the food pantries we fund.
Provided medical care to struggling children and families.
Every year, over 1,000 patients benefit from the Patient Assistance Program we support.
Sheltered homeless mothers and children.
Our support help keep the doors open at the only homeless shelters in our area.
Assisted seniors with emergency funding for repairs and heating fuel.
Seniors are able to stay warm through funding from the Essential Needs Fund we created.
Helped hardworking young men and women achieve a college education.
Our Scholar Program has provided more than $600,000 in scholarships over 10 years.

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

Will you continue to help us make lives better and brighter in the Little Traverse Bay Region? Please consider making a donation to the Bay Harbor Foundation, so that together we can improve the quality of life in the Little Traverse Bay Region now, and for many years to come.
