The Frey Foundation's first, interactive online annual report highlights several successful projects





One of Michigan's largest family foundations is leading by example with its new, interactive online annual report. The electronic format reflects the Frey Foundation's commitment to conservation by reducing its environmental impact, and it expands the organization's reach into the communities it serves.

The Frey Foundation, 40 Pearl St. NW, Suite 1100, Grand Rapids, Mich., is led by two generations of family trustees dedicated to advancing a legacy of strategic philanthropy by supporting innovative projects in West and Northern Michigan. The recently released Frey Foundation annual report showcases a few of the many programs comprising the $7.4 million grant distribution in 2012.

"The Frey Foundation is a collaborative funder," says Steve Wilson, foundation President. "The organizations highlighted in this annual report represent the collective work of grantees and funders throughout the region and beyond."

Recent grantees highlighted in the online edition include photos and stories from University Prep Academy, Grand Rapids Child Discovery Center, Top of Michigan Trails Council, Crooked Tree Arts Center, and the Health Department of Northwest Michigan.

"Frey Foundation trustees and staff have had the great pleasure of working with many innovative programs during the past year," Wilson says. "We are delighted to share some of their stories with you in the foundation's first online, interactive annual report."

Frey Foundation grants are provided to nonprofit organizations primarily in West and Northern Michigan for projects that enhance child development, protect natural resources, promote the arts and civic action, and expand the reach and role of philanthropy in local communities. The foundation was established in 1974 and permanently endowed in 1988 from the estate of the late Edward J. and Frances T. Frey.
