Thank You for Celebrating 50 Years with Us!
“Small acts, when multiplied, can change the world.”
The vision and actions of our friends allow us to make a difference for so many. We are so grateful to everyone in this video who speak on behalf of all our donors, partners, leaders, and volunteers.
Each and every one of you has worked with us at the Grand Haven Area Community Foundation for over 50 years to make our community a wonderful place to live, work, and play. For our 50th anniversary, we continued to celebrate that generosity, the hope each gift has given, and the bright future we can create with our community.
We invite every individual, family, business, and organization to be involved in caring about our neighbors and our home. Your engagement truly is the anchor of our work.

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
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. Throughout the pandemic, we have continued to offer the level of personalized service and customized solutions that individuals, organizations, and corporations have come to expect.
We appreciate your continued confidence and understanding as we navigate these ever-changing times. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact any member of our team.
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.
