The Grand Haven Area Community Foundation and you have worked together for 50 years to make our community a wonderful place to live, work, and play.

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.

A few of our COVID relief grant recipients—Mosaic Counseling, Love in Action, Four Pointes Center for Successful Aging, Good Samaritan Ministries, and St. John’s Episcopal Church—took a moment to discuss the impact of these contributions and explained just how much this support has helped the important causes they lead throughout the Northwest Ottawa County area.
At the end of 2019, the GHACF formed the Impact Investment Committee to explore a different option for investments. These investments will complement the foundation’s current investment policy, programs, and grant-making activities and establish a process for the expanded investment and development of resources in the community.
For 50 years, relationships have been an integral part of the success of the GHACF and very much remain so today. We are grateful for the relationships that we have with community leaders because we are often more impactful when we work together.
