The organization has granted $1,122,000 since its inception four years ago.

Habitat for Humanity Grand Traverse Region's project is "Building Homes And Hope Initiative." Michael’s Place's project is "Trauma, Suicide And Childhood Bereavement." Newton’s Road Northwest's project is "Newton's Road Career Investigation Platform." Old Town Playhouse's project is "Enhancing The Patrons' Sensory Experience At OTP."
