MICF simplifies the process of charitable giving while strengthening our community. We raise money through donations from community members and then grant money to local Mercer Island non-profit organizations to fund programs and projects that benefit the Mercer Island community in the following categories: arts, environment, community development, recreation, social services, education and health.

Historically, grants have ranged from an annual sponsorship of Island events such as Summer Celebration and Mostly Music in the Park, to providing Island-based public charities with funds to launch new programs or to continue well-established programs. By awarding these grants MICF strives to respond to the changing needs of the Mercer Island community.

We will be accepting grant applications from local non-profits through February 15 for the 2017 cycle and want to get the word out to the community. Your blog seems like a great way to do that! More information can be found at our website:
