Our History

Shortly after his arrival in the Diocese of Saginaw in February 2005, Bishop Carlson asked that a legal entity be created that could securely hold funds donated by the people of the diocese. His request was that funds be invested in a socially responsible manner, in investments that are consistent with the values and principles of the Catholic Church.

The result was the creation of the Catholic Community Foundation of Mid-Michigan, (better known as the CCFMM) a non-profit corporation, formed under Michigan law, and that is qualified under 501 (c ) (3) of the federal tax code.
