When you give back, you give our community the chance to move forward.
The generous contributions of hundreds of individuals, families, businesses, and organizations through the years allow us to make deep investments in our community. These investments include grantmaking, convening, training and technical assistance opportunities, research, advocacy, and other interventions that build our community. When connected, all of these efforts work together to create lasting change in our community and beyond.
Our efforts as a community foundation are, and always will be, driven by compassion. These efforts, though, are also grounded in strategy and forethought. Every decision we make is carefully considered to ensure it serves the best interests of our community.
Initiatives such as Community Partner Effectiveness, Goal 2025, and Kickstart to Career are designed to provide opportunity for the people of Newaygo County.
