During the 2015 Fall and 2016 Spring grant sessions, the SHCF’s Grant Committee considered a record number of applications. Nearly $30,000 was awarded to area non-profits, with a focus on the areas of education, visual arts, performing arts, recreation, information and community health. The Committee conducted personal interviews with several applicants to gain increased understanding of their objectives and processes, a practice that will be expanded in the future. The next grant session is Spring 2017. Grant applications should be submitted by April 15th.
Your dollars make our dollars go further.
With every donation that we get, we are able to put more back into our community. Read about the amazing programs we are able to support in South Haven.
This summer, the South Haven Community Foundation granted the Youth Development Company/PAL $2,000 to provide scholarships to families attending the Summer Fun in the Park program. This program runs for six weeks each summer from 12pm to 6pm Monday through Friday. Children receive lunch, afternoon snack and dinner each day. It is heavily focused on physical activity, forming positive relationships with staff and having the best summer ever!
Its motto is “No Child Left Inside!”
Each week we attend field trips, which gives many children the opportunity to experience and learn something new. Thank you South Haven Community Foundation.

The grant awarded to the Michigan Maritime Museum from the South Haven Community Foundation, has enhanced the experience & interpretation of our newest exhibition, Mysteries Beneath the Waves and companion exhibition, Fatal Crossing.
The audio & visual affects truly offer the visitor a lifelike experience within our campus,
and the comments from the public as well as the students have proven just that. Thank you so much for supporting the Museum and helping us provide an exceptional experience, attracting thousands to South Haven, the Maritime District, and the Michigan Maritime Museum.
