What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Education is one of the most reliable paths to increased opportunity. Through our scholarship program, the Community Choice Foundation empowers students to achieve their career goals while remaining in Michigan after graduation. When a student receives our financial support, they are pledging to use their education to GiveBig by living, working and serving communities in Michigan. We also provide other forms of community support and direct volunteer activities in partnership with other nonprofit organizations who align with our philanthropic areas of focus.
