Providing grants and programs to children, youth and women to enhance their health, safety, and well being and provide development
opportunities in the areas of education, art, literature and music to improve their quality of life.
Started in 2006, the Karen Colina Wilson Foundation has as its mission statement “Making a positive difference in the lives
of woman and children.” Programs to enhance the health, welfare, safety and well-being of children, youth and women and for
development opportunities of women and children in areas of education, art, literature and music are the primary focuses of
this foundation. The geographic area of preference is the Southern and Western Wayne County (Michigan) area, with additional
support in communities where trustees live. Typical grant amounts range from $500.00 – $10,000.00. We often offer matching
grants, thereby encouraging groups to broaden their scope of funding.
Because needs are great and funds are always
limited, it is the intent of the founders to offer support for specific projects that focus on our target population, and
hopefully, can affect societal change. Types of funding we do not supply include: buildings, construction, capital expenditures,
camps that are not locally located, sports activity booster funds, or on-going operational support. Proposals are accepted
at any time, and decisions are made on a rolling basis.
