Advancing Health and Wellness in the West End Community

The West End Health Foundation defines the West End as the City of Ishpeming and City of Negaunee and the following Townships; Champion, Ely, Humboldt, Ishpeming, Michigamme, Negaunee, Republic, Richmond and Tilden. Programs and services offered in these locations and to benefit the residents of these municipalities are a priority.

The West End Health Foundation announces the opening of our 2022 Proactive Grant Cycle.  The theme for this year’s funding is youth services, with a special focus on mental health programs and initiatives.

The foundation will award up to $30,000 in grant funding to non-profit organizations that provide programs and services for youth in the West End of Marquette County.
