About Us

Our Beginnings

Phil and Jocelyn Hagerman have committed their lives to making a difference. After years of service to communities through donated time and resources, they determined that establishing a foundation would allow them to create greater impact and positive change.

The Hagerman Foundation was established in the summer of 2014 with one passion in mind — to brighten and improve the lives of future generations. The Hagerman’s core values of family, community, and education create the Foundation’s framework of giving.

The Hagerman Foundation looks forward to building a legacy of hope for generations to come by supporting organizations that promote education, life skills, entrepreneurship, ministry, counseling, and the arts in surrounding communities.

In 2014, Skypoint bought the historical Dryden Building in downtown Flint, which now houses the offices of Skypoint and The Hagerman Foundation. In 2015, Skypoint purchased the Fenton Bean Company, a landmark building in Fenton, and transformed it into the Red Fox Outfitters retail space. The redevelopment of these iconic buildings brings jobs and a new retail destination downtown.

Helping the community thrive is more than good business. It’s personal. Phil was born and raised in Genesee County; he feels compelled to give back to the communities in which he lives and works
