We use our collective strength to guide future policy, host events, and partner with organizations in our community and beyond to bring child health and wellness issues forward through our advocacy efforts.
We are an active participant in our relationships with community partners which allows us to fulfill our mission by awarding grants that support a collaborative approach to advancing health and wellness of children in our communities.
We are committed to taking the lead on children’s wellness. We raise funds through generating awareness with The Children’s Foundation initiatives, signature events and collaboration with our fundraising partners.
Through funding and advocacy, dedicated to three core pillars, Community Benefit, Pediatric Research and Medical Education, The Children’s Foundation enables researchers and community organizations to identify and implement innovations capable of advancing children’s health.
Since 2011, we have provided more than $80 Million in grant funding. Our current areas of focus include mental health, nutritional wellness, abuse and neglect, pediatric research, injury prevention, and youth development.
The Children’s Foundation initiatives create opportunities to broaden its reach, grant more funds, and make a greater community impact. Each partnership has its own focus and receives essential expertise, guidance, and support from The Foundation. With each initiative, The Foundation advances its mission to improve the health and wellness of children and families in Michigan and beyond.
