A Friendly Thank You to All Our Generous Supporters

2018 Annual Golf Outing

Since 1988, the Friendship Community Center has received generous support from Leelanau County businesses, organizations and individuals. Without this support, we could not keep up our building and programming.

The Friendship Community Center exists today because of the generosity of many in the Leelanau and Grand Traverse communities. 


The creation and renovation of the center and the programs that have been key to its success would not have been possible without the generous support of:


The Village of Suttons Bay

Suttons Bay Township

Bingham Township

The Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians

The Michigan Office of Service to the Aging

The Rotary Club of Suttons Bay

Rotary Charities of Traverse City

The Grand Traverse Area United Way

The Suttons Bay Chamber of Commerce

The Suttons Bay Art Community

The Suttons Bay Student Activities Fund

Suttons Bay Congregational Church

Keswick United Methodist Church

the Suttons Bay Bible Church

Citizens Insurance

The Charles Buervic Foundation

The Leelanau Probate Court


... and many more local businesses and private citizens.

We have had the pleasure of meeting countless people over the decades of our existence, many of whom have kept our mission alive. To all of you, THANK YOU!
