We work with a dedicated group of Fund Development Interns, Campaign Coordinators, and Campaign Cabinet members who lead their companies and organizations to raise about $10 million in individual contributions each year.
We Vet Agencies
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 Grant 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 Fund Solutions
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 47 local agency partners, our funding helps more than 65,000 people in Kent County.
We Mobilize Volunteers
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.
