Our Mission

Leelanau Peninsula Economic Foundation is a non-partisan advisory board whose purpose is to support the Leelanau business community by providing resources, programming and collaborative opportunities that will strengthen the economic vitality of Leelanau businesses and communities. We are a self-funded non-government organization (NGO).


What We're currently focused on

The Villages and Townships of Leelanau County are the focus of our community planning and economic development initiatives. By providing assistance in the form of educational research and programs to our local communities and townships we hope to contribute to their economic viability and sustainability and ultimately to the business community in which they reside. As such, we have identified and are addressing several important initiatives: affordable housing, broadband, zoning regulations, and RRC (Redevelopment Ready Communities).
