Canton Community Foundation

As a community leader, CCF plays many roles in various initiatives and collaborative efforts in the greater Canton community. 


CCF believes strongly in taking care of our veterans. The Foundation has historically provided support to veterans through the Annual Veterans’ Summit. This year, we have expanded our outreach.

IMG 05197th Annual Veterans’ Summit

Our annual Veterans’ Summit, hosted every September, brings experts together with veterans in need of understanding the benefits for which they may be eligible through Veterans Affairs. Our goal is to help educate our local veterans about the benefits that are available and how to apply for them. The event is free for veterans and their caregivers. This year’s summit will be held at Westland City Hall on Tuesday, September 20, 2016. This is a FREE event for veterans and their family members, however registration is required.  Click Here to register.
