It is with great pleasure that I serve as the Chairperson of the Auburn Hills Community Foundation.  My family owned and operated a business in the Auburn Hills community for a number of years.  We always appreciated doing business in Auburn Hills and found its citizens and community leaders to be supportive of our continued growth and success. 

Today, Auburn Hills is a dynamic community of approximately 21,500 residents and hundreds of local, national and international businesses. Home to automotive giant FCA US, Auburn Hills is also the world headquarters to well known corporations such as Borg Warner, Guardian Industries, Visioneering, Ralco, Faurecia, and many more.  Diversity among our citizens is similar to that of our business community.  We have a large presence from many business sectors, and in addition, we have large retail, sports and entertainment, and educational components.

I hope you'll join me in supporting the work of the Auburn Hills Community Foundation.  All of the funds we grant are directed back into the our local community, thus supporting our philosophy that Charity Begins at Home. 

Very truly yours,

Kristen Baiardi
