Mission & Goals

The Forest Park Foundation was incorporated as a Michigan nonprofit corporation on the 23rd of January, 2017. The Foundation was established for educational purposes, whose activities are anticipated to be limited to the receipt of gifts, grants and contributions; the investment of such contributions; and the making of scholarships and similar distributions to individuals and organizations as described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The Foundation intends to make distributions annually, which are at least equal to the required distributable amount under IRC Section 4942.
