Black Legacy Fund

Continuing our legacy

Our Black Legacy Fund, led by community volunteers, builds on the legacy of giving in Black communities in greater Grand Rapids. This endowed Field of Interest fund has traditionally focused on providing education and job opportunities for Black youth. Today, the Black Legacy Fund is building on that legacy and broadening the scope of the fund’s impact.

We are living out what our ancestors wanted us to do, and now we are creating legacy for other people.” 

Our Black Legacy Fund

Over the last few years, the African American Heritage Fund committee members have been exploring the strengths, values and guiding posts of the fund's purpose. Through working with a consultant and deep conversations among the committee members, we are proud to announce the African American Heritage Fund has transitioned its title to our Black Legacy Fund. This intentional renaming is meant to honor the heritage of ancestors, invite a more inclusive understanding of Black communities in Kent County and create a legacy for future generations.
