The Beaverton Activity Center has created an Endowment Fund through the Midland Area Community Foundation (MACF) to secure funds that will be available for future operations.
Money donated to the BAC operating fund will be used for the day-to-day operations of the facility.
Each of us has responsibility for tomorrow.
Each of us has the opportunity to give back and set a path for those who will follow, just as those who came before have done for us.
Beaverton Activity Center has put the community on a progressive path, and we need your support to continue the momentum! As we strive to build the BAC Endowment Fund that we established through MACF, our goal is to grow the fund to $1 million which would generate annual support of at least $50,000 for Beaverton Activity Center operations. This fund may also be used to stimulate other community endeavors that match our mission.
You will make a positive, long-lasting impact with a donation to your choice of two funds that fulfill different purposes:
• BAC Endowment Fund will make funds available for long-term sustainability.
• BAC General Fund supports operations, improvements and building maintenance.

The Beaverton Activity Center is a nonprofit organization registered and approved by the IRS so your donation is tax deductible to the extent that the law allows. Our IRS approval letter as a 501(c)(3) is below.
In 2011, a diverse group of local people came together and dreamed of a center that could serve as the hub of activities for our community.
Over the next four years that dream culminated in the Grand Opening of the Beaverton Activity Center on October 17, 2015.
The following year, we met with success beyond our wildest dreams – the City of Beaverton nominated the BAC for Michigan Municipal League’s statewide “Community Excellence Award,” and we won! Our success is due in no small part to ongoing efforts and partnerships with the Beaverton Branch of the Gladwin County District Library, MidMichigan Health, Mid-Michigan Community Action Agency, Beaverton Rural Schools and, of course, our treasured Volunteers and enthusiastic participants of all ages.
We appreciate your continued support and hope that you’ve found great joy in the use of the Beaverton Activity Center, and in knowing that this community gem has been revitalized, will be kept useful and vibrant, and will continue to grow for future generations to enjoy.
We look forward to many more successful years so we have established an endowed fund to provide support for improvements and building maintenance projects. For example, in the first year of operation, we held many gym events and stage performances that we know could have been enhanced with an upgrade to the speaker system, the installation of sound-absorbing panels and improved stage lighting.
We respectfully ask you to consider the Beaverton Activity Center in your annual giving of outright cash gifts, memorial gifts honoring friends and loved ones, and long-term planned giving.
