Michiana Gateway Foundation celebrates 25 years

By Staff
BUCHANAN -- Michigan Gateway Community Foundation held its annual meeting recently, which included a celebration of its 25th anniversary.
Michigan Gateway Community Foundation is headquartered at 111 Days Avenue, Buchanan.
Immediately following the meeting, members of the community and supporters of the Foundation gathered with the staff and volunteers of the foundation for an Ice Cream Social.
The festivities were at the Buchanan Commons, across the street from the foundation offices, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on July 23.
Ice cream, cookies and lemonade were served.
Michigan Gateway Community Foundation was incorporated in 1978 as the Buchanan Area Foundation.
Since the mid 1990s when the Niles Area Fund and the Cass County Community Fund were established, the foundation has been known as Michigan Gateway Community Foundation.
Today, the foundation has assets of nearly $5 million, and holds 57 endowed funds, with income from these funds made available for grants to charitable organizations and community projects in Buchanan, Niles, and all of Cass County.
Please call the Foundation at 269-695-3521 for more information on the Annual Meeting, the foundation, or opportunities to establish a new fund in your name, or to support an existing fund that serves one of your charitable interests.
