The Cadillac Area Community Foundation enhances the quality of life for all people of our community through philanthropy – connecting donor gifts with the needs in our community.
At the March board meeting, the trustee proactively approved a $1500 grant to the Cadillac/Wexford Transit Authority to provide transportation to individuals in Wexford and Missaukee County to COVID clinics. These funds will be matched 100% by the New Freedom Program.
This is just one more way the Foundation is acting on the needs of the community due to the pandemic.
