The ongoing task of the Foundation is to receive donations and to make prudent investments so that additional funds may be distributed each year. The Foundation is registered through the Internal Revenue Service as a charity to which tax deductible donations may be made. Donations in any amount or in any form will be gratefully accepted. Small donations, when pooled over the years can accrue significantly.
Each fiscal year, beginning October 1, our Foundation awards grants to worthwhile projects and programs in our community.
In the past ten years awards totaling over $130,000 have been made. Last year, a total of $14,750 in grants were awarded to:
• Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital – We Do Care Fund
