Competitive Grant Program

Through our grants, the Community Foundation directly invests in projects and strategies that support, improve and enhance the Holland/Zeeland area in which we live and work.

The Foundation’s dynamic relationships with local nonprofits, government, businesses and donors uniquely position us to bring together innovative ideas and proactive solutions to challenges and opportunities in our community with the resources needed to build a better future.

Board members and staff work to continuously assess community needs, seek out diverse community perspectives and monitor best practices to ensure the Foundation serves as a prudent steward of the funds with which it has been entrusted.
