2021 Newsletter Highlights FFE Investments and Impact

For the fourth consecutive year the Kalamazoo Foundation for Excellence (FFE) is releasing its city-wide annual newsletter online in advance of mailing a copy to every household in mid-December.

Learn about the recent, historic commitment of $400 million to the FFE’s endowment, as well as some of FFE’s 2021 accomplishments in the focus areas of Affordable Housing, Small Businesses assistance, Youth Development, Shared Prosperity, and city-wide Infrastructure improvements.

The newsletter also contains resources that all residents can use to apply to join the FFE Board of Directors and to participate in FFE’s cycle of impact.

FFE supports the goals of the City of Kalamazoo, funds aspirational projects, and empowers Kalamazoo residents to achieve the lives they want for themselves and their families. FFE's impact begins and ends with residents, who identify the needs that FFE investments address, along with advancing the transformational goals of Imagine Kalamazoo 2025.
