Van Buren Civic Fund aims to enhance Van Buren Township residents' quality of life. Although this goal is singular, it is also broad, which is why the fund's work is widespread. For example, Van Buren Civic Fund has awarded grants to install lighted speed limit signs near Tyler Elementary School and playground equipment in Van Buren Park. It has also awarded grants to provide a van for September Days Senior Center and replace the Police Department Marine Unit's boat motor. To raise money for these projects, the fund hosts various activities throughout the year, including a Halloween-themed footgolf tournament and a Detroit Tigers Alumni softball game.
