community and engaged philanthropists to be fully vested in
and empowered to develop solutions.
A graduate of Flint Northwestern High School, Oliver earned
a bachelor of applied arts degree from Central Michigan
University. He is immediate past president of the Flint Alumni
Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity and active member
of numerous other community organizations. He and his
wife, Shay, live in Flint with their daughters, Zaiah Rene and
Oliver will lead CFGF
during a significant period
of growth. In 2016, the
foundation set a new record
for grantmaking—$ 9.9
million. At the same time,
CFGF became the home
for gifts from over 18,000
donors who gave $18
million to the Flint Child
Health & Development
Fund. To steward these
significant resources, CFGF
created the Foundation
for Flint, a supporting
organization of CFGF. In
addition, Flint Kids Learn
raised in Flint,
(FKL), another newly created supporting organization of CFGF,
will steward the FKL Building Fund for the construction of a
new early childhood development center in Flint.
The highly competitive national search, which began in
January this year, attracted over 126 applications and was
conducted by DHR International.
The Community Foundation of Greater Flint serves the
common good in Genesee County—building a strong
community by engaging people in philanthropy and
developing the community’s permanent endowment—now
and for generations to come. CFGF helps donors support the
causes they care about, today or through their estates.
Since 1988, the Community Foundation has granted more
than $109 million to nonprofit organizations to build a thriving
community. CFGF serves Flint and all of Genesee County
including its community funds in Clio, Davison, Fenton,
Flushing and Grand Blanc. Its supporting organization, the
Foundation for Flint, stewards the Flint Child Health and
Development Fund and the Moving Flint Forward Fund in
response to the Flint Water Crisis.
