PROJECTS - 2014

The Foundation made its first gift to the hospital to support the 2014 Expansion and Renovation Capital Campaign.  In addition to improving their current facility, the project more than doubles the number of inpatient beds.  The Foundation committed $250,000 over a five year period to fund a portion of this expansion.

The YMCA will soon be opening a new branch in Southeast Grand Rapids.  The facility promises to serve a diverse community in an inclusive facility.  The Foundation continues its partnership with the YMCA through a $250,000 grant payable over a five year period.  Ground breaking is scheduled for September 24, 2014.
