Community Foundation of Greater Flint
The Community Foundation of Greater Flint serves the common good in Genesee County—building a strong community by engaging people in philanthropy and developing the community’s permanent endowment—now and for generations to come. CFGF helps donors support the causes they care about, today or through their estates. Since 1988 the Community Foundation has granted more than $124 million to nonprofit organizations to build a thriving community. CFGF serves Flint and all of Genesee County including its community funds in Clio, Davison, Fenton, Flushing and Grand Blanc. Its supporting organization, the Foundation for Flint, stewards the Flint Child Health and Development Fund (aka Flint Kids Fund) in response to the Flint Water Crisis.
The tournament’s donation to the Community Foundation of Greater Flint will help in efforts to improve the lives and support the long-term development needs of children and families affected by the water crisis with early childhood education, nutrition education, access to healthy food, access to a medical home and family emotional supports.
Additionally, in collaboration with the Community Foundation of Greater Flint, the tournament will create a new scholarship program designed to support post-secondary education for Flint area students.
