Kimber and Judy DeWitt Family Fund

Dr. Kimber DeWitt first came to Mt. Pleasant in 1974 to attend Central Michigan University. During that time, he became involved with the community. He worked at Central Michigan Community Hospital and was involved with the First Presbyterian Church. Through his experiences, he made many great friends and created good memories; he knew this was a community he could settle down in. After graduating dental school in 1986, he returned to Mt. Pleasant to start his orthodontic practice.

Judy DeWitt grew up in Mt. Pleasant. After living in Chicago for eight years, she decided to return home. She worked as an accountant at a local firm for several years, but decided after a while to become a professor and to teach the art of number crunching at Central Michigan University.

The DeWitts have raised their four children (Erin, Heather, Kevin and Jeffrey) in Mt. Pleasant and feel that they could not have asked for a better community that offers so many positive experiences for a family. Dr. DeWitt credits the success of his business to the many great people who live and work here.

The Kimber and Judy DeWitt Family Fund was created as a means to give back to the community that has provided them with so much. “I have met many wonderful families and continue to meet new families all the time. The Mt. Pleasant Area Community Foundation was a perfect vehicle for us to establish a way of giving back and supporting this community,” Dr. DeWitt said. Established in 2001, the Kimber and Judy DeWitt Family Fund is an unrestricted fund that makes grants to charitable programs, services and projects that help address the ever-changing needs of Isabella County residents. The earnings from this fund will benefit our changing community for years to come.
