About this grant

In 2004, the Genesee Area Focus Council, the Flint-Genesee Economic Growth Alliance, the Flint Area Chamber of Commerce and the Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce began a planning process to consolidate into one entity. As a result, the newly formed Genesee Regional Chamber of Commerce will provide an array of economic development, education and business development services in the Foundation’s home community of Flint and Genesee County, Michigan.This grant to the Genesee Chamber Foundation, the fundraising arm of the Genesee Regional Chamber of Commerce, will provide funds to build the capacity of the new organization during the transition and start-up period.
