Welcome to Missaukee Foundation

The Missaukee Area Community Foundation was developed as a Geographic Component Fund of the Cadillac Area Community Foundation in 1999. This Fund was established with the express purpose of enhancing the quality of life for residents of Missaukee County, Michigan. The Missaukee Area Community Foundation has its own Advisory Board of Trustees made up of residents of Missaukee County. Fundraising activities undertaken by this Advisory Board all take place in Missaukee County, and all grants from this fund benefit Missaukee County residents.

As a Geographic Component Fund, the Missaukee Area Community Foundation enjoys the advantages of reduced operational expenses while having access to the same professional staff, fund managers, and investment managers as the Cadillac Area Community Foundation. The Missaukee Area Community Foundation also shares in all of the benefits and legal rights permitted under State and Federal Laws and Regulations pertaining to the Cadillac Area Community Foundation, including IRS-designated status.  Your donation may be eligible for federal charitable deduction if your itemize.  We encourage you to consult with your tax specialist regarding your specific situation.

Gifts to the Unrestricted Fund provide increased grantmaking opportunities to address the broadest range of local needs. Gifts to the Youth Field-of-Interest offers permanent support and grantmaking opportunities that are restricted to projects and programs that benefit youth in Missaukee County, Michigan.
