Our annual giving campaign, Building the Future, is focused on raising funds to expand our programming and create more opportunities for Michigan’s youth.
Can we count on your contribution to Build the Future?
We ask for YOUR help in Making a Difference by Building the Future to raise $57,000 in support of Michigan's youth. Our Building the Future annual giving campaign begins on August 22 and runs for 15-weeks.
Your donations help Michigan’s youth gain valuable life experiences that will help them succeed in education, employment, and in life.
“Without the support of my specialist, Mrs. Huggins, I don’t believe I would have ever gotten to a place where I would realize my true potential. Mrs. Huggins changed the lives of many students, and I am grateful to have been one of them.”
We invite YOU to Build the Future!
