Approximately one-fourth of Northern Community Mediation’s (NCM) funding comes from the State Court Administrative Office (SCAO), and half comes from Charlevoix and Emmet counties and their courts. The other 25% is raised by NCM.

In addition to fees and grants, Northern Community Mediation focuses upon four fundraising opportunities: the Theatre Party in Petoskey, the Theatre Party in Charlevoix, the Donor Campaign, and donations in general. Due to COVID-19, NCM has not held its Charlevoix Theatre Party since 2019 nor its Petoskey Theatre Party since 2020. Present plans, however, include a new fund raiser. Loco Locals will be an opportunity for NCM to make some money while supporting the local community. How will this be done? Entrance to the event will be a $20 gift certificate from a local business, restaurant, store, or establishment. For that $20, you will have all the food you can eat, two bands, opportunities to win prices galore, a really fun time, and know that you have helped NCM and your community.
