WELCOME to the Mike & Gillian Goodrich Foundation.  The Foundation was established in 2008 by Mike & Gillian Goodrich, both lifelong residents of the Birmingham, Alabama area.  The Foundation seeks to strengthen communities and improve the quality of life in the Birmingham metropolitan area, the Black Belt, and the State of Alabama.  The Foundation supports the transfer of innovative ideas to create a vibrant and healthy community in certain specific areas of focus.

The Foundation offers two avenues of support to area nonprofits:  Leadership grants and Community Support grants.  Leadership grants present an opportunity for the Foundation to develop a long-term relationship with a nonprofit organization whose mission and purpose closely aligns with the goals of the Foundation.  Nonprofit organizations may apply for Community Support grants on an annual basis for proposals that support the Foundation’s focus areas.
