11th Annual Veterans' Summit

For the past 10 years, the Canton Community Foundation has partnered with Legal Help for Veterans to host our annual Veterans' Summit.  While the COVID crisis is preventing us from hosting an in-person event this year, we will not let it deter us from educating Michigan veterans and their care givers on the many changes in their benefits.  

Please join us for our 11th Annual Virtual Veterans' Summit, Tuesday, September 15, 2020  - 9-Noon.

While this is a free event, we ask that you register using the link below in order to receive the login information.

Thank you to our sponsors, Jack Demmer Ford and Community Financial Credit Union, for assisting us in offering this program to our military veterans.
