Last year, we launched a series of free events called "Discover Midland". The idea was to invite families to fun and unique locations so they can get to know their community and meet some of the staff and trustees at the Midland Area Community Foundation. It proved so successful that we've continued the program in 2017. Special thanks to the Midland Center for the Arts for hosting this year's first event! Guests enjoyed the museum as well as a special behind-the-scenes tour. We even got a sneak peak at the set of Beauty and the Beast, coming this month to MCFTA. Interested in joining us next time? Make sure to sign up for our e-newsletter for invites.
McTavish keeps on giving.
Barley McTavish isn't a real person. However, a real generous (and anonymous) person did establish a fund at the community foundation to help those in need. Those who have an urgent need may request help by writing to Barley through the Midland Area Community Foundation. Recently, a father of four requested help replacing his worn front tires so he could safely commute to work and back. Barley obliged. Donors are finding ways to give back to their community through scholarships, donor-advised, field-of-interest funds, and even funds used to anonymously help neighbors in need. Whoever the real Barley McTavish is, this individual has our thanks for being a true giver. The Barley McTavish fund and hundreds of others accept gifts large and small anytime through our donation page.
