Grand Rapids Community Foundation

By connecting people, their passions and our region’s resources, Grand Rapids Community Foundation and our partners work toward an inclusive and equitable West Michigan. Over the last century, the Community Foundation has used the tools of philanthropy to respond to community needs. Today, to carry out our North Star and overcome racial, social and economic inequities, we must respond with intention and care. Our partners inspire, motivate and guide our work.

A new century of service and impact

In 2022, Grand Rapids Community Foundation celebrates our 100th anniversary. While this milestone year commemorates a century of responding to the everchanging needs of Greater Grand Rapids, it also marks the beginning of a new century of service and impact in our community.

Philanthropists Among Us

Both of us get a great sense of pride by giving back to and supporting the causes that have impacted us and the community in which we live. We both feel that we give so other people have opportunities and that helping other people succeed is one of the greatest rewards.
