Big Change: It Can Happen Here.
Communities are made up of people—not just people who work, play, learn and shop—but also people who care, give and envision what's possible. Those people (you) are often the difference between a good community and a great community.
Sure, you might still be building your business, getting kids through college or maybe you're just starting your own career, making a life for yourself - you might feel like you only have so much to offer. But that doesn't need to stop you from being a Big Changer. All it takes is your commitment to this community and desire to see Big Change.
When we bring that together with lots of others like you, and leverage Grand Rapids Community Foundation's nearly 100 years of leadership and grantmaking expertise, the results are hard to miss...
From boosting education and the arts, to helping build a healthy economy, ecosystem and population, Grand Rapids Community Foundation is all about building and strengthening this community.
We believe in bringing people together to make a sustainable difference—one that's not just about money, but also about innovation, inclusion, leadership, accountability, and hope. And one of the best things about community foundations is that we're accessible to a wide range of donors with different interests and capacities. In other words, we're accessible to YOU.
So whatever stage of life you're at, however much you have to share, there's a lot of power in coming together around something we love (like this community, for instance). That's why we've created a new Community Foundation group specifically designed for active business owners, professionals and community leaders - the next wave of Big Changers!
You can make it happen here!
As a Big Changer, you can choose to invest in the community endowment fund(s) you're most passionate about:
- Economic Prosperity
- Healthy People
- Vibrant Neighborhoods
- Healthy Ecosystems
- Academic Achievement
- Arts and Social Enrichment
- Community Good (supports all areas)
Big Changers show commitment to our community by making a one-time $5,000 gift or by committing to a 5-year pledge (set your own gift level).
Big Changers will also be invited to fun events to learn about community needs and resources (inside info you won't get anywhere else), while networking with community-minded peers. We're looking forward to answering any questions you might have.
Please consider making it happen here, please consider being a Big Changer.
