Who We Are

The Stockbridge Community News is a Michigan nonprofit organization, IRS-licensed to operate as a nonprofit 501(c)(4) organization (# C4-4001565). An unpaid, volunteer board of directors oversees all our operations. Our print and online newsletter are free to all members of the community and available to the general public. Proceeds beyond one year’s operating expenses will be donated to a 501(c)(3) charity or equivalent of the Board’s choice.

Our Mission

   To promote the common good and general welfare of residents in the local Stockbridge, Munith, Gregory, Pleasant Lake and Fitchburg community through the collection and dissemination of local educational news and social-benefit information. 

Dear Reader,

Welcome to the Stockbridge Community News, a non-profit public service for the greater Stockbridge area.

Access to quality, consistent information is the glue that binds a community together. The unpaid volunteers on the Board of Directors, along with the assistance of many hands, is pleased to provide up-to-date local educational news and information.

You may assist in many ways. For example, the News is working to create a plump “Community Calendar,” so please send dates, times and locations of upcoming events. Perhaps you attended a rousing soccer game and have pictures of your goalie daughter blocking an opponent’s kick? A church potluck coming up? Someone you know receive a notable award or recognition? Email information or articles (photos welcome) to Hope Salyer, Director of Community Relations at stockbridgecommunitynews@gmail.com.
