Community Impact

testimonial author Michael Bacigalupo - State Theatre of Bay City

"The Kantzler Foundation has generously supported the State Theatre of Bay City with grants to help fund multiple projects to keep the theatre on the cutting edge of technology, and its original renovation.
From the digital marquee which adorns the Washington Avenue entrance to the high tech lighting and sound system to the original renovation that was started in early 2000, the Kantzler Foundation has always been there to help, and to keep the State Theatre the 'Gem of Bay City'.
Without their help not only at the State Theatre but in the entire Great Lakes Bay Region, some projects would not even get off the ground. The Kantzler Foundation is truly a gift to the community and will always be appreciated for the generous grants and opportunities throughout the Bay City area and the Great Lakes Bay region."
