The foundation is intentional in its investments. We focus on the opportunities where our support can accomplish goals that we believe in. It is suggested that only those organizations that are closely aligned with the current areas of interest of the Foundation apply through our online portal. Prior to submitting your application, please review the Foundation's areas of interest. The Foundation’s Trustees are unlikely to consider new grants to educational initiatives or organizations and organizations outside the greater Grand Rapids community unless they have received previous funding from the Foundation.
