As the year draws to a close, the Grand Rapids Area Community Foundation is reflecting on the incredible impact we’ve achieved together throughout the past months.  The community and local nonprofit organizations are still recovering from the last few tumultuous years and exploring how they will navigate in the future.  Now, as we approach the year’s end, we invite each member of the community to join us in a collective effort to make a lasting impact through year-end giving.

Year-end giving is a powerful tradition that allows us to come together, celebrating the spirit of generosity that defines our community.  It is an opportunity to invest in the future, support essential causes, and strengthen the bonds that make our community a vibrant and caring place to live.

In 2023, thanks to the support of generous donors, the community was able to support key issues such as animal care, social services, or helping local students further their education.  Your contributions have been instrumental in creating positive change.  As we celebrate these accomplishments, we also acknowledge that the need is ongoing and there is still work to be done.

As we come together to close out the year, let us embrace the spirit of giving and community.  Your support is not just a donation; it is an investment in the well-being of our neighbors, friends, and future generations.
