We unite community resources to invest in solutions that reduce poverty in West Michigan.
A Thriving Community for All
Give more by giving together.
We do the due diligence that individual donors don’t always have the time, resources, or knowledge to do. With an emphasis on accountability, each Community Investment Fund grant is selected based on criteria including program type, population served, program design, and disparities addressed, ensuring a strong return on the investment.
We empower people to unite and solve complex problems here in West Michigan. Our fundraising campaign dollars are allocated to address the basic needs of local families and strategically solve systemic barriers to education, income, and health. Through more than 50 local agency partners, our funding helps more than 65,000 people in Kent County.
For more than 80 years, our Volunteer Center has been helping local volunteers find where they're needed. Through expanding rapidly to serve an increasing number of schools, government entities, and community members, we have positioned ourselves at the forefront of helping companies find new ways to engage their employees in volunteering.
