Dear Friends of the Bay Harbor Foundation,

Like everyone else, at the Bay Harbor Foundation we are hoping that this summer marks a return to better times. This past year has been difficult, especially for those already struggling to make ends meet. Now more than ever our work assisting with immediate needs has expanded to a level that will be insurmountable without your help.

We hope that you will continue to help us care for children and families compromised by hunger, young scholars that need our support, and individuals who need help to find shelter and pay for their medical care.

The results of your generous gifts are appreciated by so many:

  • Scholarship Recipient Lily Payne, Michigan State University Class of 2021: “Because of these uncertain times, I questioned the value of continuing my education. While I didn’t know what my future held, I decided to finish my degree, and this scholarship played a vital role in my decision. Notification of this scholarship was truly a light at the end of the tunnel. Like many things I learned working at BHYC this past summer, the small achievements add up and there is much reward in persevering during these troubling times.”
  • Patient Assistance Program Recipient: “I want to thank you so much for helping me travel to my specialist appointment in Detroit. Without your gift, I would not have been able to afford the cost of my treatment.”

With your donation, together we can make a difference and significantly improve the quality of life in the Little Traverse Bay Region. Thank you for everything you do to make everything that we do possible!
