We’re Here for Our Community

The Grand Haven Area Community Foundation is our community’s charitable foundation. We connect people, support programs, and lead change to help our community thrive, and we help improve and enhance the quality of life by promoting a healthy, inclusive, and diverse community.

Responding in a Time of Crisis

As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis continues to increase in severity, we want you to know that we are taking steps to maintain everyone’s health and safety, while also maintaining full and uninterrupted service to our fund holders, our partners, and our communities. At the Grand Haven Area Community Foundation (GHACF), the Allendale Community Foundation, and the Coopersville Area Community Foundation, our fund holders, donors, partners, teammates, along with their families, and the communities that we serve remain our top priorities.

What can giving just 5% do for the community you love?

It could result in $1.1 billion in charitable gifts! We could change the future of Northwest Ottawa County together.

For good. For ever. For our community.
