Beautification Endowment Fund
In 2006, the City Beautification Committee opened its endowment fund at the Frankenmuth Community Foundation. Reliant on funding from local businesses and families, the CBC established the Endowment Fund to create a long-term savings plan to provide funding for CBC projects. Those projects have traditionally included flags, banners, hanging flower baskets, and Christmas decorations.
CBC Endowment Chair, Debra Hardin, describes the importance of the endowment. “We have been successful funding beautification efforts in Frankenmuth for nearly 60 years because the people who contribute like what we do. This endowment fund helps guard those special programs from future uncertainty regardless of economic hiccups, assuring that we keep the clean and beautiful Frankenmuth we value today.”
The endowment fund is housed at the Frankenmuth Community Foundation, which supports non-profit initiatives in the Frankenmuth area. The CBC looks to build a base fund of $282,000 to augment the annual fund campaign once we have reached the target.
When contributing to the Endowment, make your check payable to “Frankenmuth Community Foundation” noting the contribution on the memo line for the CBC. Endowment Donations (like all others) can be dropped off or mailed to City Hall at 240 W. Genesee Street, Frankenmuth, MI 48734.
