Chemical Bank Foundation grants $10,000

Since its inception in 2012, the Chemical Bank Foundation has supported many worthy projects around the state. Its goal – to improve the quality of life throughout the state and in the communities it serves.

With an understanding of the important community role played by libraries and the significance of the New Interlochen Public Library in the Interlochen community, the foundation has awarded $10,000 to the campaign.

“Chemical Bank serves Interlochen Public Library as a true community partner,” said IPL Board Chair Pat Thompson. In March, the bank’s local branch announced a $2,500 gift to the library campaign thanks to the work of branch manager Jan Crossman. In addition, bank staff members annually volunteer for a project at the library.
