Hunter Family Fund 

The Hunter Family Fund is a donor advised fund that was created by Cheryl, John, and James Hunter in 2017 to support the efforts of local organizations within Isabella County.

Cheryl and David Hunter have lived in Mt. Pleasant since 1974. Their children were born and raised here. David loved attending all of his children’s and grandchildren’s sports and enjoyed watching them whether it be on the collegiate level or little league. Dave was involved in numerous memberships and boards throughout his lifetime, and he was the owner of The Wayside Central (1975), O’Kelly’s Sports Bar & Grille (2001), The Cabin Bar (2003), Hunter’s Ale House (2007), and Hunter’s Handmade Brewery (2014), all located in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan.

When David passed away suddenly on November 21, 2017, Cheryl and family wanted to honor both David and their ties to the Mt. Pleasant area. Cheryl believes it is important for the community to have funds that can be utilized for different areas of concern such as education, literacy, and bettering our community.
