Michigan State Fair Community Giveback Fund

Giving back to the community has always been at the center of the organization since the inception in 2013. In the seven years since they have been in existence, the Michigan State Fair LLC has given a total of $3,230,000 in the form of charitable, financial, and in-kind contributions to community organizations, scholarship recipients, and various charities.

For the 2020 event, the Michigan State Fair has selected four community causes that they will be directly making donations to. The fair has made an expanded commitment of $50,000 to urban and rural youth scholarships, compared to the $40,000 awarded in 2019. Additional donations have also been committed to the Oakland Avenue Farm in Detroit, Shriners Hospitals for Children, and Military Families United. Through this new virtual effort, the Michigan State Fair is asking the viewers and participants to donate and aid the fair in the support of these highlighted community partners.

The donations from this campaign will be divided up between the remaining organizations after the $50,000 for the youth scholarships has been met. These organizations were selected as outstanding community partners who are doing amazing work for so many families, neighborhoods, and individuals. Their impact and presence throughout the State of Michigan is immeasurably valuable and the Michigan State Fair is proud to support such impactful organizations. Please consider a contribution of any size to aid in the support of these wonderful organizations.
