Spring 2022
The 200 Years 200 Women Campaign commemorates Bath Township's bicentennial by honoring the women who have made a positive impact in the community. Donations to this campaign are a wonderful way to celebrate the special women in your life for Mother's Day, birthdays and other momentous occasions. To learn more about this historic campaign, we talked with Bath Community Fund Development Committee member and donor Cheryl Nilsen.
Bath Township is recognized for its commitment to natural resources and its rural, residential way of life. However, the community also has unique needs and immense untapped potential. Perhaps the greatest challenge is securing a lasting stream of support to preserve historical sites, protect places of natural beauty, and sustain the more than 60 nonprofit organizations that make a difference in the lives of so many. An endowment fund ensures our children and all future generations will continue to benefit from and emulate the fund's legacy of giving back to this treasured community.
We’re looking for passionate community members to serve on our advisory board and volunteer on our committees. Whether you prefer to work behind the scenes or jump right into the action, we could use your skills! Volunteer opportunities include assistance with fundraising activities, marketing, grantmaking and more. For information about Bath Community Fund and how you can get involved, please contact Deb Hoffman.

Folks here appreciate the little things in life, such as taking a nature walk, gardening, and making small talk with neighbors. We feel lucky to call Bath our home.

Bath Community Fund is important to us because it strengthens and permanently sustains this wonderful community for both current and future generations. We encourage you to support the fund because, as the saying goes, 'It takes a village.' We believe that by donating locally, you can see your community thrive and grow before your own eyes, and even a small gift can make a big difference that will last a lifetime."
