Planned Giving

The East Grand Rapids Community Foundation is pleased to work with donors individually to craft a planned giving program that meets their needs and carries their wishes into the future.

Gifts to the EGRCF can be incorporated into estate plans and may include outright gifts, charitable trusts or multi-faceted donations with specific directions.

Ask any board member for more details, or contact Karen Brower, City Clerk at 949-2110.

East Grand Rapids is a wonderful place to live. EGR's excellent school system, first class infrastructure and civic and public offerings attract residents who value community and excellence. While the significant EGR taxes that you pay go a long way toward covering the costs of these things, there are many elements of East which are used everyday by its residents which require outside funding.

The reasons to give are many. It may be paying a tribute to the past and all that you have benefited from and enjoyed about your town. It may be a recognition of present civic qualities of this special place that you would like to see continued and expanded for you and/or your children/grandchildren. Whatever the motivation, a contribution represents an affirmative commitment to the future which will be greatly appreciated and conservatively cared for under principled and disciplined stewardship.
