The Marysville Community Fund was established seven years ago with the goal of creating a permanent charitable fund dedicated to programs, projects and organizations in Marysville. The fund began with a generous donation from DTE Energy for $25,000. The generosity of other community partners like SMR, Wells Fargo Advisors, Marysville Funeral Home and SEMCO Energy along with various community leaders and residents have helped to continue to grow the fund.
The fund is managed by the Community Foundation of St. Clair County and is overseen by a committee comprised of city residents.
Residents or companies who would like to support their hometown are encouraged to give to this fund.
The committee will be giving away at least $20,000 during the Sept. 16 home football game to organizations, programs and projects benefitting the Marysville community. School clubs, youth sports, the recreation department, local churches, robotics teams, band, etc. that are located in and/or serving the Marysville community are eligible.
