Who We Are:
The Grand Haven Area Community Foundation, located in Grand Haven, Michigan and founded in 1971, is a permanent community endowment built by gifts and bequests from thousands of individuals, families, and organizations committed to improving and enhancing the quality of life in the Tri-Cities area. Guided by a volunteer Board of Trustees made up of community leaders, the Foundation has two primary functions.

What We Do:
First, we invest funds received from donors and distribute the investment earnings to nonprofit organizations through grants to nonprofits that are located primarily in the service area of Northwest Ottawa County, Michigan. Second, the Foundation manages and administers funds for individuals, families, businesses, and other organizations that have specific charitable objectives.

Gifts:
The Grand Haven Area Community Foundation and Affiliates, have received over $6 million in 2012 from thousands of individual donors, businesses and families wanting to improve life in Northwest Ottawa County. While some of these contributions were in the form of bequests - legacies from generous donors to support the community's future, many were from individuals generously sharing their resources for the good of our community.

Grants:
In 2012, the Foundation and Affiliates distributed more than 3.7 million in grants and scholarships to help nonprofits better carry out their mission for the good of our community.

Community Foundations are the fastest growing form of organized philanthropy in Michigan. The Grand Haven Area Community Foundation is a proud member of the Council of Michigan Foundations.
