The Children’s Foundation celebrates 10 years as an independent foundation

This month, The Children’s Foundation reached an important milestone celebrating ten years as an independent foundation, evolving from a hospital foundation.  In 2011, The Foundation could have gone in several directions but ultimately decided to take a path no other foundation in this position had successfully taken before. The journey presented unique and incredible challenge, but the reward has been more than we could have ever imagined and has improved the health and wellness of countless children and families in our Michigan communities.

Thank you for your continued support, we are looking forward to what we can do together throughout the next ten years!

Several of our Trustees reminisce and reflect on where we started and the milestones that have led us to such great success in the following video:
