MAKE A DIFFERENCE on december 2nd AND SUPPORT #givingTuesday

What is #GivingTuesday? 

This year, on Tuesday, December 2nd, the Cadillac Area Community Foundation will be part of a global call to action.  We are celebrating a day dedicated to giving --- a day when charities, families, businesses, community centers, students, retailers and more will all come together for #GivingTuesday.

#GivingTuesday is a movement to celebrate giving and kick-off the holiday giving season by inspiring people to take collaborative action to improve their local communities, and to give back in better, smarter ways to the charities and causes they support. #GivingTuesday strives to create a better world for everyone.  #GivingTuesday is a counter narrative to Black Friday and Cyber Monday because it reminds us that the spirit of the holiday giving season should be about community and not just consumerism,

We encourage you to spend with a purpose by participating in #GivingTuesday with your community foundation. The Cadillac Area Community Foundation houses many Funds that cover a broad range of interests. A list of these funds can be viewed on this website by clicking the "Funds" tab on the left side menu bar.


We ask that you consider making your year-end donation on #GivingTuesday. It could not be easier. You can donate online by clicking on the JustGive tab to your left; or, you can mail in your donation to CACF, 201 N. Mitchell Street, Suite 101, Cadillac, Michigan 49601.

You may be familiar with the Cadillac Area Community Foundation, but you may not know all that it does. The philanthropic impact of the Community Foundation is evident throughout Cadillac's neighborhoods, health and social service agencies, cultural organizations, educational institutions, youth organization, economic development projects, and other community groups. Working through local nonprofit organizations, the Cadillac Area Community Foundation has been making our community a better place to live since 1988.

No one person has the resources to provide solutions to all the challenges faced by a community this diverse. However, by combining the financial and human resources of many individuals, we can make a significant difference. Working together by pooling resources is the basic idea of a Community Foundation.

Founded in 1988, the Cadillac Area Community Foundation is Cadillac's permanent philanthropic endowment. A nonprofit, tax-exempt, public charity, the Community Foundation receives gifts from individuals, families, businesses, foundations and other organizations eager to make a difference in the future of our local community. These funds comprise the Community Foundation's assets, most of which are part of the Community Foundation's permanent endowment (pools of funds invested for the future of the community) and are used to support local, nonprofit organizations through grants and technical assistance.
