Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Michigan nonprofit organizations in eligible locations to enhance the local community. Proposals should align with the following areas of interest: arts and culture, community service, education, environment, and healthcare. Funded projects and programs must serve residents of the Kent County and Grand Rapids metropolitan area.

The Wege Foundation's Grants Policy affirmed Peter M. Wege's five “pillars” and established target grantmaking allocations for each of these topics of interest. In addition, the Wege Foundation has long embraced certain cross-cutting themes applicable to all five pillars, such as requiring LEED certification for capital grants and a commitment to helping the vulnerable and disadvantaged. The themes are:

  1. Diversity, equity, and inclusion
  2. Civic engagement
  3. Environmental sustainability
  4. Organizational sustainability

For more information on the five focus areas and the cross-cutting themes, see https://wegefoundation.com/areas-of-interest/.
