The Colina Foundation in Grosse Ile is a family foundation dedicated to improving the lives of children. It provides grants in Mattawan, Mich. (southwest of Kalamazoo) and Fort Collins, Colo., where its trustees live, as well as in southern Wayne County. It supports organizations that offer education, environmental stewardship, and art and culture experiences to youth. The foundation was founded in 1992 by John and Nancy Colina and was funded following the sale of the family business. While it still supports organizations that focus on children, particularly for children up to the age of 5, it is shifting part of its focus as climate change and the environment are becoming more problematic.
