President’s Report

Short and sweet

Johnston_Renee-150Wow, where did another year go? And, when is it actually going to feel like Christmas?


There’s no doubt about it, every year seems to pass by faster and faster, and 2015 was no exception.


Regardless how fast the year may have been, it’s always good to look back and reflect on what the year presented and be thankful.


My 2015 year-end message is going to be brief this year, mainly because I can sum it up in a few words … “Thank You.”


I am truly thankful every year, especially to serve you and the community through my role at the Saginaw Community Foundation, but sometimes I wonder if we really say it enough. So, this year, I want to make sure it comes out loud and clear.



… for your on-going financial support

… for your friendships

… for your trust

… for your commitment

… for your partnership

… for your passion

… for your time

… for your patience 

… for allowing the SCF staff to assist you in achieving your philanthropic goals and

… for helping us make an impact in Saginaw County, because we couldn’t so it without you!


The staff and I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year. See you in 2016!
