The EGRCF identifies worthwhile projects in our community that are often outside the scope or scale of the city's official budget. In the future, the EGRCF will accept grant applications from community groups, committees, scouting troops and service organizations. Projects may range from public service messages to major improvements to public facilities and everything in between.
Since inception, the majority of funds collected by the EGRCF are earmarked for specific projects. In these cases, The Foundation acts as a conduit for funds, collecting tax-deductible gifts and donations. Because we are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, all donations and gifts are tax-deductible under guidelines set forth for charitable giving.
If you have a project idea you'd like to bring to the Foundation's attention, contact Karen Brower at (616-949-2110, or contact one of the officers by email from the home page.
