Our Impact

For Good. For All. For Ever.

In Spring 2021, the community foundation competitively granted $3,200 to area nonprofit organizations. These gifts benefit many areas of community life, including:


Coopersville Area District Library ($1,200) to purchase Ten Hotspot service contracts. Available hotspots are critical for areas with limited access in the rural areas, especially when trying to do virtual school or simply have a reliable connection. The library is hoping to bridge that digital gap.


Ottawa Community School Network through the OAISD ($2,000) to help support free monthly After School Clubs for East and South elementary students, grades 1-5, at CAPS. This pilot program will offer extracurricular activities to allow youth to explore new activities, build self-esteem, and develop new skills in a positive and safe environment.

In Spring 2021, CAYAC competitively granted $14,000 to area nonprofit organizations. These gifts benefit many areas of community life, including:

  • $1,000 to the City of Coopersville Recreation Department for their Mini-Sports Camp at Meet Up and Eat Up
  • $1,500 to the Coopersville Area District Library for the purchase of Early Literacy technology
  • $2,500 to the Coopersville Area Public Schools for their Three Year Old Preschool program
  • $1,000 to the Coopersville Area Public Schools for their Girls on the Run Program
