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.
