We Saw A Problem...

There were many generous people in Troy that wanted to help.  They wanted to make their community a better place to live, but they didn't know how to support local causes and improve the entire Troy Community effectively.

Next, We Started Talking...

In December 2015 a small group of citizens met over coffee and decided the time was right to start a Community Foundation in Troy, Michigan.  Working through the North Woodward Community Foundation the Troy Community Foundation was able to secure their 501(c)3 status and held their first meeting in April 2016. 

We have a Clear Vision...

Today, the Troy Community Foundation provides a simple one-stop place for charitable individuals and businesses to support the entire City of Troy. We receive contributions, evaluate grant applications, and send the money into the community to support citizen driven initiatives.

It is all about others, not ourselves. The Board of the Troy Community is unified in the belief that citizen driven initiatives are the ‘glue’ that holds our city together. Volunteerism and personal generosity make Troy a world-class community.
