Mecosta County Community Foundation
Giving Together to
Enhance Our Community
The Mecosta County Community Foundation was established in February 1991 as an affiliate of Fremont Area Community Foundation. The Mission of Mecosta County Community Foundation is “Giving together to enhance our community.”
Today there are over 90 funds with the Community Foundation. The first general grants were awarded to community organizations in 1993. In 1998, the name was changed to the Mecosta County Community Foundation and the assets of the foundation exceeded $1,000,000.
Today the Community Foundation has assets of 4.5 million in endowments. It is a vibrant organization that provides $25,000 per year in community grants.
Quality of Life
We seek to address community needs for positive change across many areas. Art and culture, education, health, nature conservation and the environment, community development, historical resources and social services are just some of the areas we strive to make positive change.
Countless lives are made better each year because of the generosity of the Mecosta County community. Through competitive grant rounds, through funds designated for specific organizations and through scholarships to college-bound students, the Community Foundation provides the vehicle to help enhance the quality of life for all of us.
