In furthering our mission of beautifying alleyways and public spaces, our next step was to move forward to Brush Alley. Our “Light up Brush Alley” Project received another generous donation from The Hagerman Foundation. The alley lights will create a safer environment and an increased sense of security for visitors, businesses, residents, and students as well as strengthen the core of downtown as we move Flint forward
One of the most important parts of the story of how the project was essentially revived by the Flint River Corridor Alliance and the Flint River Watershed Coalition in 2015 was when they were awarded the grant from The Hagerman Foundation to initiate the preliminary engineering and design for the project.
The support from The Hagerman Foundation was timely and helpful as we continue to expand our work. The generosity of Phil and Jocelyn, along with the enthusiasm of the staff makes it a pleasure to work with them to move Flint Forward. Our goal is to create vibrant, healthy communities and partners like The Hagerman Foundation help us to change the lives of those we serve
With the generous support of The Hagerman Foundation, the YWCA was able to relocate to a comfortable, beautiful new space and help ensure valuable resources will continue to be available for one of our most vulnerable populations, survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
This leadership grant for the restoration of the Capitol Theatre by The Hagerman Foundation is critical to moving this important project forward, and illustrates, once again, the tremendous support and commitment the Hagerman’s have shown to our city. We are proud to be recipients of this contribution, and prouder still to be able, through this gift, to plan and provide our community with the highest quality live performing arts experiences in what will be a fantastically renovated, state-of-the-art venue.
"Without the gift from The Hagerman Foundation, we would not have been able to achieve such an aggressive schedule. Our launch was accelerated by at least one calendar year with the help of this grant.”
