Mt. Pleasant Area Community Foundation

For good. For ever.

Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for all citizens of Isabella County, now and for generations to come, by attracting and holding permanent endowed funds from a wide range of donors, addressing needs through grant making and providing leadership on key community issues.

Summit Petroleum Fund

The Summit Petroleum Fund was created in February, 2015 to help support the ever-changing needs of the community and to make Isabella County a better place to live and to work.

Based in Mt. Pleasant and Rosebush, the Summit Petroleum Corporation produces crude oil and natural gas in Michigan and across the United States. The company strives to produce its products in an environmentally safe and efficient manner.

The Summit Petroleum Fund is a community impact fund of the Mt. Pleasant Area Community Foundation. Its resources will be used to meet a variety of needs in the community over time. Bob Long, President of Summit Petroleum, is a Mt. Pleasant native and lifelong resident.  He understands that, as in most communities, Isabella County will face challenges that need addressing. “This fund is flexible and will provide resources to fund the best solutions,” Long said.

Serving on the Community Foundation Board since 2009, Long filled the role of President in 2014. He believes in the Foundation's mission to address needs through grantmaking and to provide leadership on key community issues. "The endowment funds established at the Community Foundation are entrusted to a group of community leaders with the future in mind," he said. "Iam confident in them and their ability to keep a good thing going."
