Summer of Sharing Donation Helps Local School District

Clarenceville Education Foundation Board of Directors
Community Financial’s 6th annual Summer of Sharing campaign is well under way and thousands of dollars have already been donated to local charitable organizations throughout Michigan. Recipients are chosen based on nominations submitted at SummerofSharing.org. The campaign asks the community to consider the question, “What GOOD could you do with $1,000?”

One of the recipients for the 2016 campaign was the Clarenceville Education Foundation. The Clarenceville School District of Wayne and Oakland Counties is located at the southern edge of Oakland County and includes sections of Livonia, Farmington Hills, Redford and Southfield. It is comprised of approximately 1,900 students in one high school, one middle school and two elementary schools.

The Clarenceville Education Foundation will use their Summer of Sharing donation to provide grants to teachers in the school district when school returns this fall. The donation will allow them to run special programs that the school district cannot afford to run.

At a time when schools continually face budget cuts for things like technology, classroom supplies, and special programs, this donation will help fill the gaps in educational programming.

"This donation will further our mission by providing additional funds for the 2016-2017 fiscal year to our amazing teachers and students. We are very excited to receive this amazing donation and recognition from Community Financial," said Daniel MacIver, who serves as the Treasurer of the Clarenceville Education Foundation.

The Summer of Sharing campaign runs through September 2. This year Community Financial is donating $65,000 to the community to celebrate its 65th anniversary.

You are invited to visit SummerOfSharing.org to learn more about how you can share your story and nominate a charity, community group, or school program that deserves a $1,000 donation. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to make a difference in your community!
