Donor + Grant
We do systems-level work and people move systems. Grand Rapids Community Foundation is committed to investing in the wholeness of people working for positive and equitable change in our community.
Grand Rapids Community Foundation supports individuals, families, nonprofits, companies and communities in West Michigan as they achieve their philanthropic goals. Donor partners create impact in Kent County by supporting the Fund for Community Good, establishing their own funds, creating planned gifts, giving through their lifetime as annual donors or investing in the causes that mean the most to them.
Their passion and generosity are helping our community rebuild on a foundation of inclusion, equity, justice and love. We are filled with gratitude for our donor partners who make investments today for a better tomorrow.
Grand Rapids Community Foundation establishes partnerships, allocates resources and implements initiatives that seek to eliminate inequities in Kent County. Together with our nonprofit and community partners, we strive to bring people together to solve complicated community problems by addressing the root causes.
