The Shelby Community Foundation was founded in 1996 to enhance and enrich
the quality of life in Shelby Township. Through the contributions and efforts of buisness leaders and individuals, the Foundation
supports projects that will benefit the entire community.
One such project would be the Packard Proving Grounds, should the property
become available to Shelby Township. In anticipation of this possibility, the Foundation approved the request of the Shelby
Township Historical Committee for the Foundation to accept restricted donations for the benefit of the Proving Grounds. Any
donors that wish to designate or restrict their contributions for the Packard Proving Grounds should make that restriction
noted on their donation. The donors will receive acknowledgement from the Foundation.
Donations to the Shelby Community Foundation are deductible as allowed
by law for 501(C)(3) nonprofit corporations. Their EIN number is 38-3341102. Donations should be sent to Shelby Community
Foundation, P.O. Box 183181, Shelby Township,Mi. 48318.
The Foundation supports projects which offer innovative and pratical
approaches to community needs. Its major goals are to promote activities and programs that provide residents of the township
with the following opportunities:
Support for the township library
Contributions can be designated for special purposes and/or used to
establish an endowment fund for a specific purpose approved by the Board of Directors. Tell the Foundation what projects you
think our community needs:
Establish an endowment to perpetuate a special interest or the memory
of a loved one. Designate the Foundation to receive a bequest
in your financial and estate planning.
