Great Reason to Support Our Community Foundation
We’re all about Grand Rapids. We make grants that support causes across the community.
90 years of community philanthropy. 2012 marked our 90th year and our leadership and grantmaking has stood the test of time.
Expert grantmaking happens here. We have an grantmaking staff that are experts in the field, they’re in-touch and involved in community issues.
We offer many ways to give. From a Charitable Remainder Trust to a gift of stock or real estate or simply giving cash—we can handle it.
We’re all in this together. Big name donors and big-hearted donors come together to make big change when pooled gifts are used to make grants. Be part of our $10 million a year grantmaking effort with a gift of any size.
Leave a legacy. Support a cause you care about after you leave this life. We promise to use your bequest to your specifications.
Pick your passion. Our field of interest funds help the causes you are most aligned with.
Stay local. The kids may leave the community, but you can continue to support it with a Fund or Bequest.
We’re leaders. When there’s a knotty issue that needs unraveling, we gather people, work together and power action with our endowment.
Community happens here. We believe in creating and sustaining a vibrant, inclusive and magnetic community.
