Community Foundation Connection
In the Fall of 2012, seven (7) Faith-Based Non-Profit Organizations joined together to form the Eastern Michigan Christian Foundation (EMCF). The seven-member organizations are: Blue Water Pregnancy Care Center (BWPCC), Bridge Builders Counseling and Mentoring (BBC&M), New Life Christian Academy (NLCA), Operation Transformation (OT), Save our Neighborhoods & Street (SONS), Wonderful News Radio (90.7 Hope FM & Power 88.3) and Eastern Michigan Youth for Christ (YFCEM). Then in January of 2020, A Beautiful Me (ABMe) became the eighth organization to join EMCF. The Eastern Michigan Christian Foundation partnered with and became one of over 150 funds managed by the Community Foundation of St. Clair County. This partnership allowed EMCF to have its finances and investments managed by an organization that is highly respected throughout the entire Blue Water Region.

What is the benefit to the donor?
Donors have the ability to pool their money with other donors for a greater impact. Donors can invest in causes they care deeply about. Small amounts given grow over the years. Donors become part of a team that is making a difference in the community. Donors are provided the opportunity to begin to build a legacy. Being a donor provides the opportunity to be generous and assist in the needs that you care about. Donors can start giving now and/or leave an end-of-life gift. Eastern Michigan Christian Foundation can help donors develop their legacy plan. When you’re gone, your gift continues.
What is the value to the organization(s)?
Your gift helps create sustainability for the faith-based non-profit community. Every year the foundation takes the proceeds from the funds and invests and distributes them to the faith-based non-profits. Your gift provides much needed funding for needs that might otherwise go unfunded. Because your gift is invested, it will continue to generate income for the organizations. Your money makes money.
What if I’m not wealthy?
Your gift over time becomes a larger gift. Imagine the power of a small gift given over many decades. Giving teaches your children the value of giving. Ninety percent of people who give today did so because their parents were givers. Gifts of any amount help build a giving culture in your home. As people age, they often have more resources at the end of life than they realize.
Why is this season of your life a good time to give?
The sooner you start giving, the more your gift compounds and grows over time. Giving now allows opportunity to establish your giving priorities and your goal of leaving a legacy. Long after you are gone, your gift continues to grow and give.
