When it formed in 1991, the League Foundation was a way to secure funding for our members, and it has done that to the tune of $2.4 million in grants and contributions. But the League Foundation also has evolved into something we didn’t envision nearly 20 years ago. It has become a leader in identifying and filling the unmet needs of Michigan’s local officials and communities. Keeping your dollars in mind, the Foundation continues to provide education programs at little or no cost. The Foundation is a catalyst in developing and offering our members new opportunities and initiatives—most notably the Center for 21st Century Communities (21c3) and the Michigan Green Communities Challenge.
