Corporate, Non-Profit, and Community partners are important in bringing our mission to life. More than just monetary donations, their in-kind support, volunteers, and ideas support preparing children from low-income households for future academic and social success.

Washtenaw Coordinated Funders
The Washtenaw Coordinated Funders are a collaboration of the Office of Community Development (representing the City of Ann Arbor, Washtenaw County, and Washtenaw Urban County), the United Way of Washtenaw County, the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation, and the RNR Foundation.
The Washtenaw Coordinated Funders seek to better coordinate our funding of human service programs in Washtenaw County around shared priorities. This effort involves better sharing of information among us, closer work with local nonprofits to establish common community goals, and increased cooperation in our funding decisions.
