Atlanta American Legion Post 201

Posted By: Thom Seymour (June 4, 2022)
With the $1000 grant the Atlanta American Legion Post would be able to give several scholarships to deserving High School Seniors. Help fund a Boy Scout Troop. Give assistance to Veterans and their families who are facing financial hardship. Also the Post would be better able to help support State and National projects which in turn would help a greater number of people in time if need or help further a students education.

Giving Songs

Posted By: Tracy Bins (June 4, 2022)
Giving Songs is an all-volunteer Northville/Novi-based 501(c)(3) that provides wheelchair accessible vehicle grants to Southeastern Michigan families with a child who is a wheelchair user. Founded by parents of a severely disabled little boy looking to help others walking in their shoes, Giving Songs has awarded almost $300,000 in vehicle grants to 22 families since 2012. Our grants average close to $14,000, so they are quite literally lifechanging for our families.

From 2012-2018, Giving Songs averaged one vehicle grant a year. In 2019, we provided three grants. In 2020 and 2021, we provided four grants each year. We have provided FIVE vehicle grants in the FIRST HALF of 2022 – and we have a growing waiting list of qualified families asking for our support. $1,000 from CFCU would go a long way toward helping us help one of these families.

Thank you in advance for your continued support of our mission!

Plymouth Pollinators

Posted By: Felicity Hirsh (June 3, 2022)
Plymouth Pollinators are a local grass roots group working to increase pollinator habitat within the community through education, collaboration, and the use of native plants in local garden spaces. They do awesome work creating pollinator gardens in public spaces around Plymouth, providing educational opportunities through guest speaking engagement or hands on gardening events.

They believe that many small garden spaces can add up to a large and positive impact on pollinator habitat if planted with purpose and with the future in mind.

Their work is important part of our food ecosystem as 1 in 3 bites of food is made possible by pollinator.

The gardens bring families and communities together around a common purpose and bring beauty to the neighborhood.

As a nonprofit donations are the lifeline of their work.

creative arts and humanities fund

Mr Rudy Lawson started doing AntiBullying programs for school kids many years ago, doing programs throughout US and in Canada. 4 years ago he approached me about updating his program to include the Rotary 4 way test as part of the Antibullying program. My Livonia AM Rotary club developed a soccer ball with the Rotary Logo and the 4 way test in 16 languages to send around the world.It seemed natural to make it part of the AntiBullying prgram as bullying is growing as a school problem.This money would help provide funding for him to do program in local schools.

Northern Michigan Veterans Coalition

Posted By: Ryan Sanderson (June 3, 2022)
The (NMVC) Northern Michigan Veterans Coalition serves the 11 counties in Northeast Michigan. NMVC helps creates awareness about the needs of and benefits available to veterans and their families. NMVC Board Members personally assist by connecting with the appropriate NMVC Partner (business or organization) to resolve the issue. When all efforts are exhausted, or, the request is unusual, NMVC provides financial funding directly to veterans and their families. In 2022 alone, NMVC has assisted veterans with rent and mortgage assistance, legal assistance, utility assistance, gas cards, well repair, household goods, furniture, appliance items, clothing, work attire, and vehicle repairs. Currently, NMVC is partnering and working daily with the VA, Red Cross, DAV, VFW, local churches, local businesses and other non-profits to provide financial relief to veterans and their families in Gaylord, MI effected by the 20 May 2022 F3 tornado.
