About The Sunset Project
The Sunset Project was founded in 2021 by three lifelong friends looking to make a difference in the community they grew up in. After losing their close friend, Sawyer Boyd, to suicide in 2016, the three were committed to creating lasting change in Northeast Michigan's creative and mental health spaces.
Currently operating in a seven-county service region (Alpena, Alcona, Presque Isle, Iosco, Oscoda, Montmorency, and Ogemaw Counties), The Sunset Project executes its three programs and their growing list of projects with the goal to drive its mission and the community forward.
