Traverse City Charity Challenge

The Father Fred Foundation

The Father Fred Foundation is a grassroots charity that assists our neighbors in need with a wide variety of resources such as food, clothing, household goods, furniture and financial aid. We do not accept state or federal aid. Our programs are completely funded by the generosity of the community. This year we are celebrating 30 years of caring.

We serve five local counties including Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Leelanau, Kalkaska. We welcome all individuals. Every donation makes a difference.
