Since 1989, the Canton Community Foundation has helped to enhance philanthropy in Canton Township and the surrounding communities of Western Wayne County. We use our knowledge and broad expertise in local and regional issues to provide personal service tailored to each donor’s philanthropic and financial interests.
We work with donors to help them invest in the causes they care about most and to build endowment funds that benefit the community and their charitable interests, create personal legacies, and serve as catalysts for positive change.
Canton Community Foundation play a key role in identifying and solving community problems. Since inception, they gave an estimated $4 million to a variety of nonprofit activities in fields that included the arts and education, health and human services, the environment, and disaster relief. They also have given over $1.3 million in scholarships to local deserving students.
We believe philanthropy is vitally important to the public good and instrumental in improving the lives of our community members.
Contributing to the Canton Community Foundation means you can be part of making transformative change in the areas that are important to you.
If it’s charitable, we can get involved. As a donor, you determine what you wish to support. It’s not about us - it’s about you helping people in the communities that you care about.
