The Cook Family Foundation invests in community organizations that are committed to positive change, both within Shiawassee County and within the organization itself. We make grants to community institutions that desire to better serve the residents of Shiawassee County through new activities, improved programs, or collaborative initiatives. Strong preference is given to grants that are part of an organizational self-improvement plan and enable the growth and/or enhance the quality of a nonprofit institution. Rather than just make a gift of financial resources, the Cook Family Foundation seeks to invest in the mission, and the future, of an organization.
We encourage all prospective applicants to contact us prior to submitting a full proposal. We will discuss your organization’s goals as well as the Cook Family Foundation’s interest in your proposed project. You may also submit a one-page letter of interest if you prefer.
Grant Application Deadlines:
The Cook Family Foundation accepts grant applications throughout the year and reviews those applications on a quarterly basis. Please contact the Foundation to verify the next application deadline. The Foundation establishes a total annual grant budget in January for that year and addresses applications on a first-come, first-served basis within that budget.
