Isaiah M. Oliver, President and CEO, Community Foundation of Greater Flint - BLAC Detroit Magazine

“Much of the struggle happening within the community-based world is around how to get the lemons to the organizations that can turn them into lemonade. The Community Foundation of Greater Flint is here to help with the picking. ‘We’re a bridge between individuals who have means or access to resources and folks who are on the ground doing the work to support the community,’ says Isaiah M. Oliver, president and CEO.”

This Flint community leader heads a public charity determined to bridge the gap between philanthropists and community.

Our Story

The Community Foundation of Greater Flint is a tax-exempt public charity created by and for the people of Genesee County. CFGF enables people with philanthropic interests to easily and effectively support the issues they care about - immediately or through their will. Donors can establish a charitable fund at the foundation by contributing a variety of assets. Those assets are then carefully invested by the foundation.

Established in 1988 through the merger of The Flint Public Trust, founded in 1950, and the Flint Area Health Foundation, created in 1978, the resulting Community Foundation combined the strengths of these two Flint institutions to position itself for future growth and giving. Since the merger, assets have grown from $10 million to more than $245 million. Over 30,000 contributors ranging from modest to magnificent means have enabled the Community Foundation to award more than $100 million in grants to the greater Flint area from over 500 charitable funds.

The Community Foundation continues to help individuals, families, businesses and nonprofit organizations achieve their charitable and financial goals by providing tools and resources that make giving easy, flexible and effective. We are dedicated to connecting people who care to the causes that matter to them and the community ... For good. For ever.

We wanted to share some pictures from yesterdays dog house build. Thank you so much for all your help in making this project possible.
I have a question about the money that was donated from Bruno Mars, why that money couldn't have been used to pay the water bills for the people of Flint? Just wanted to know
Way back when so many, early, donated towards Flint residents to help with our needs from the water crisis, it seems there was a blurb that said there would be an accounting of the donations and how they benefited Flint residents. When going to the website, there were references to programs, but did not seem there was a way to navigate to an accounting of donations. Was that a mis understanding?
Please share😃
