The Chaldean Community Foundation is dedicated to improving the stability, health and wellness of members of the community through advocacy, acculturation, cultural preservation, and community development.  In addition to these successes, CCF also provides English as a Second Language classes, citizenship preparation classes, early childhood development programming, mental health services, health care assistance through Project Bismutha, and vehicle and small business loan assistance through the Michael J. George Chaldean Loan Fund.

As CCF expands to meet the needs of clients, we will be extending services, programs, and attainable housing options with an emphasis on older adults in Oakland County. Without the support of our great community, our clients, and our strong donor base, we wouldn’t be able to function and expand the needed services and programs. 

CCF launched its Mission Campaign to raise $20,000,000 to support CCF’s mission and programs. 100% of the funds raised from the Mission Campaign goes towards:

  • Expanded Community Center, offering expanded services to clients and the community. Workforce development, Behavioral Health, Life Skills Center for individuals with disabilities and Early Childhood Education are included in the 30,0000 square foot expansion.
  • Michael J. George Chaldean Loan Fund provides low interest loans to help newly employed clients purchase a vehicle.
    *Applications subject to approval by the Michael J. George Chaldean Loan Fund Committee.
  • Van Dyke Housing Development: 135 one- and two-bedroom units to support long term housing for new Americans.
  • Become a Founding Member: Purchase a donor brick and become a founding member of the Chaldean Community Foundation’s expansion. Honoring the memory and legacy of a family member or friend can be recognized through the purchase of a customized brick message in support of the Foundation’s work. Your contribution will have a lasting impact on the Chaldean Community Foundation and help offer additional services to those in need.
