The South Lansing Community Development Association works diligently to build a strong sense of community and shine a positive light on South Lansing.  Despite economic challenges, we continue to teach garden and nutrition classes, help start community gardens, organize a seasonal farmers market, publish a community-wide newsletter, host a diverse summer festival, and present the largest sprint triathlon in Michigan. 
Every year, we manage to do a little bit more with a little bit less.  We manage well, but we can always use more help.  Please consider supporting our efforts by contributing to the SLCDA: 
  • Cash donations are used to purchase office supplies and expand programs.  
  • Sponsorships allow your business to support SLCDA events AND increase your corporate presence in South Lansing. 
  • In-Kind donations allow you to be creative with what you give and help us address everyday needs. We are currently looking for the following items:


  1. Office supplies (printer paper, ink cartridges, pens, zip ties, butterfly clips, post-it notes, etc.)
  2. Office furniture (gently used bookcases, office chairs, lamps, etc.)
  3. Gently used event canopies 
  4. Garden supplies (seeds, jiffy trays, hand tools, gloves, rakes, stakes)
