MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Ten years have passed since over $25 million in grants funded by the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi have been awarded by The Pokagon Fund to improve the lives of the residents in Harbor Country®, Dowagiac, Michigan, Hartford, Michigan and South Bend, Indiana. Much has been written about how residents and visitors in these communities have benefitted from the support given by the Fund for parks, libraries, hiking and biking trails, education and countless other community projects. However, the real heroes of the past decade have been the many grantees who have devoted themselves and their organizations to bettering the lives of individuals and communities in need. It is on the inspiring efforts of these grantees that we focus the story of a decade of grantmaking by The Pokagon Fund. Look and listen below to the heartwarming tales of how eight grantees have made a difference.
