Grant award decisions for the Anne M. Hayes Memorial Grant and the Community Impact Grant were made in early June 2019.
The 2019 Anne M. Hayes Memorial Fund Grants were awarded to the following agencies:
- Washtenaw Community College Emergency Aid Fund
- Children's Literacy Network
The 2019 Community Impact Grant was awarded to
Catholic Social Services of Washtenaw County.
The Anne M. Hayes Memorial Fund was established in 1996 by Douglas A. Hayes, professor emeritus of Finance at the University of Michigan, in memory of his late wife Anne, a civic leader and longtime Ann Arbor Thrift Shop volunteer.
The income from the endowment fund is distributed annually to social service agencies serving clients in the Ann Arbor Public School district. An agency is only eligible to receive an Anne M. Hayes Award once every three years. Grants usually range from $2,000 to $5,000.
In 2019, $25,000 was distributed in
Anne M. Hayes Memorial Fund Grants and the Community Impact Grant.
