The W.E. Upjohn Society

W.E. and Carrie "Carol" Upjohn gave the original gift that established the Kalamazoo Community Foundation and a legacy of investing in Kalamazoo County. That single act quite literally laid the foundation for us to bring out the best in ourselves and in others. That single act has become central to a community legacy of philanthropy that defines our capacity to effectively address the challenges of the day.

The W.E. Upjohn Society is our way of acknowledging the philanthropy of the Upjohn family's unique charitable legacies and their generosity in giving gifts that benefit Kalamazoo County forever.

Members of The W.E. Upjohn Society include donors who have established an endowed fund; created an Advised Fund, whether endowed or not; established a charitable gift annuity; or designated the Community Foundation as the recipient of a planned gift.

The Community Foundation was designed to grow and change along with our community, and we sincerely thank the members of The W.E. Upjohn Society for preserving the legacy of investing in our community started by the Upjohn family so many years ago.
