Kailey Even

Administrative Assistant
What do you do at the Grand Haven Area Community Foundation?

I am the first face you’ll see when you come through the doors at the GHACF!  I’m here to greet visitors and help staff with any administrative needs.

How long have you been with the GHACF?

I joined the team in February 2023. 

Why do you work at the GHACF?

The GHACF amplifies the voices of both individuals and non-profit organizations in West Michigan.  It is my honor to work here- I can’t imagine a place more deserving of my energy.

Education & Experience

I graduated from Hope College in 2008 with a Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance.  My interest in music and creativity led me to volunteer and work at several non-profit organizations within the arts, culminating in over eight years of non-profit experience.

Do you have a leisure activity or hobby?

Spending time in nature with my husband and our Siberian Husky (Winnie), yoga, Facetiming with my niece and nephew who live in Maine, watching funny dog videos on Instagram, meditation, organizing, and growing roses in my garden.

What’s something most people don’t know about you?

I love playing bluegrass and old-time fiddle tunes!  Let’s get together and make some music.
