In 1971, twelve visionary community leaders each gave $100 to launch the Grand Haven Area Community Foundation. Their dream was to create a permanent community endowment––one that would be built over time by gifts and bequests from individuals, families and organizations. Now, almost 50 years later, that dream is still being realized.
Today, it is our continuing mission to provide funding to programs that support every corner of the Tri-Cities area, and make life in our community better for all. Our priorities are threefold: to help our donors realize their philanthropic goals; to better our community with grants for meaningful, necessary projects; to collaborate with other regional partners to create overall community good and expand our philanthropic reach.
Board of Trustees
The Governing Board of the Grand Haven Area Community Foundation is made up of local leaders from diverse backgrounds. Our trustees provide invaluable guidance and vision for all areas of our work. These individuals donate their time, energy, and expertise to help us identify opportunities for long-term community impact, respond swiftly and appropriately when unforeseen challenges arise, and address our community’s ever-changing social, cultural, educational, and greatest needs.
