Our History

Board of Trustees

Board of Trustees

 In 1994, the State of Michigan encouraged formation and support of community foundations by providing income tax incentives to both individuals and businesses. 

The Livonia Community Foundation was chartered in 1995 for the purpose of building and administering an endowment fund, and to seek contributions to grow that fund.  A donation of $15,000 from former Mayor Robert Bennett in 1996 brought the balance to $32,000 at the end of its first full year.  It was the foresight of former Mayor Bennett combined with his leadership and that of those community leaders who have since served on the Board of Trustees that grew the Livonia Community Foundation to $386,000 by December 2001 and to over one million currently. 

The earnings (interest, etc.) on that fund must be used to support the Foundation’s mission supporting Livonia’s own cultural, historical, educational, and charitable institutions. The number of contributors has grown each year, and now includes more than 750 Livonia families, individuals, and businesses.
