Cheboygan County Community Foundation

Since its founding in 2011, the Cheboygan County Community Foundation has been a beacon of hope for the area. Donations are used to assist projects and organizations that exhibit the potential to improve the quality of life for residents and visitors of Cheboygan County.

Cheboygan County Community Foundation (CCCF) is a 501(c)(3) organization committed to raising tax-deductible funds for the benefit of Cheboygan County's economic and educational endeavors.

The current Signature Project is the Crib Lighthouse Renovation. The Cheboygan County Community Foundation (CCCF), the City of Cheboygan, and the Cheboygan Downtown Development Authority (DDA) are partnering to renovate the Crib Lighthouse.

The Crib Lighthouse is an inactive lighthouse that sits at the mouth of the Cheboygan River at Lake Huron. The lighthouse was an active lighthouse stationed in the Straits of Mackinac for over 100 years. When it was decommissioned and replaced, the United States Coast Guard gave the lighthouse to the City of Cheboygan, now sitting at the mouth of the Cheboygan River at Lake Huron in Gordon Turner Park (City Beach).

The lighthouse has become the placemaking symbol and logo of the City of Cheboygan. The lighthouse sits at the gateway to the Inland Waterway and needs significant improvements. The City made it a priority to renovate the lighthouse and aesthetically improve the gateway to the Inland Waterway.
