Karen Zehnder is a longtime supporter of the Frankenmuth Community Foundation

Jordyn Savage is proud to call Frankenmuth home.

That’s why the 17-year-old is so grateful to be part of the Frankenmuth Community Foundation’s Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) – a youth group that awards grants from a permanently endowed Foundation Youth Fund.

Jane Hartman dedicated her life to helping others.

Now, thanks to the Frankenmuth Community Foundation scholarship created in her name, that legacy will live on for decades to come.

Weiss Scholarship new to Frankenmuth Foundation

Louie and Kathleen Weiss know all about hard work.

So in hopes of rewarding young people with similar work ethics, the Weisses this winter created a new Frankenmuth Community Foundation scholarship fund earmarked for those pursuing business or technology degrees – and who have strong experience in paid or volunteer work.

New Board Members at Frankenmuth Community Foundation

The Frankenmuth Community Foundation is pleased to welcome two new members to its Board of Governors.

Terry Weiss and Jim Bickel – both longtime Frankenmuth residents and community leaders – joined the nine-person board in January. They filled seats vacated by W. Don Zehnder and Scott Zimmer, who served the board for many years and whose terms expired at the end of 2015.

Making a positive impact in the Frankenmuth area!
