Help Us Donate $65,000 During the Summer of Sharing!

As temperatures start to rise, so does our amount of community support. As we get ready to launch our 6th annual Summer of Sharing Campaign, we ask nonprofit organizations throughout southeastern and northern Michigan, “What GOOD could you do with $1,000?”

As part of Community Financial’s 65th Anniversary celebration, we will be donating $1,000 a day for 65 days this summer to nonprofit, educational and community organizations throughout Michigan!

Community Financial will start accepting nominations from the public on June 2. At that time, members of the community can visit www.SummerOfSharing.org to submit an essay-style nomination explaining how their favorite nonprofit benefits the local community. These essays will stay live on the site for others to learn about how the nominated organizations are making a difference.

The Summer of Sharing is one of the ways we help give back to the communities that support us, but we cannot do it alone. We need your input to let us know which groups are making the greatest impact. Past recipients have included animal welfare groups, school music programs, food pantries, veterans groups and many more!

President and CEO Bill Lawton is excited to keep the tradition of sharing alive in 2016.

“We are inviting the community to tell us which organizations are doing great work and deserve additional financial support,” Lawton said. “It is part of our culture to give back to our communities, and we are proud to bring the Summer of Sharing back once again.”

Throughout the next three months, Community Financial will announce the winning recipients beginning June 6 on www.SummerOfSharing.org. Community Financial has donated over $300,000 through its Summer of Sharing program since 2011.
