Centennial Vision

Centennial Vision

Grand Rapids Community Foundation is celebrating 100 years in this community, and we are looking forward to the next century. As we strive to help build a better Kent County for everyone, we know that our vision needs the voices of the people who live here. 

We invite you to share your voice and your vision for the future of our community. What does it take to ensure a thriving community for the future? Or, what do you hope your grandchildren or other future generations will experience here? We hope to collect 100 voices to celebrate 100 years—diverse voices with diverse experiences—to help inform Grand Rapids Community Foundation’s next century of service and impact.

We know it is a busy season, so as a thank you for spending the time to share your 100-second video, we will send digital gift cards to the first 100 people between November 18, 2022 and December 31, 2022 share videos about their vision for the future of Kent County at GRFoundation.org/Vision. A digital gift card will be sent to the email you provide when you record and upload your video if you are among the first 100 eligible participants. Limited to one gift card per person and one gift card per video.
