Auburn Hills, Mich.—Feb. 21, 2014—The Auburn Hills Community Foundation has announced that it is accepting applications until March 31, 2014 for funding requests.  The Foundation’s areas of focus include senior citizens, veterans and active duty military, children, healthy living initiatives, and environmental issues.  The Auburn Hills community must be the population served.  Grants are awarded to non-profit groups, schools, and local units of government. 

This year, the Foundation plans to award at least $15,000 in grants, equal to the generous match it has received from the Baiardi Family Foundation, Inc.  “Last year in its first year of giving, the Foundation awarded a total of $1,500 in grants”, said Tom Tanghe, Chairman of the Board of the Foundation.  “This year, we will grant at least ten times that amount to worthwhile activities thanks to the Baiardi family and several other generous donors”, Tanghe added.

To confirm eligibility and request an application, contact Tom Tanghe at ttanghe@auburnhills.org.   

About The Auburn Hills Community Foundation

The Auburn Hills Community Foundation was established in 2011 and its initial Board of Directors was selected. In its first year, the Board methodically acted to elect its Officers, establish its operating bylaws, and determine its areas of focus for giving within the Auburn Hills community. Some initial contributions to start the Foundation came from a number of businesses in and around Auburn Hills. The Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization as recognized by the internal revenue service. Contributions to the Foundation are tax deductible. As always, you should seek the advice of your tax professional as to the deductibility of your contribution.
