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? What do you hope your grandchildren 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.
