Women in Philanthropy

Making a Difference

Women in Philanthropy builds community around the power of giving back. We strengthen the bond between GRCC and the women in our community who know that every dollar makes a difference to the students that we serve.

But the difference we make extends far beyond contributions. We empower students to fulfill their dreams and ensure GRCC provides a world of opportunity to our community, right here in West Michigan.

Our collective voice is committed to:

  • Identifying and advocating for the resources our students need.
  • Educating others about the power of giving back.
  • Growing gifts by women to GRCC.
  • Investing in our students.

"My GRCC experience was life changing, especially for me being a non traditional college student with children while working. They had tons of supportive resources, programs, and tutoring labs that kept me motivated and successful. I am proud to be a GRCC alumni."

"Thanks to Metallica and GRCC I am now a sparks fly-zone kind of gal. The Metallica scholars welding program has done wonders for not only myself but for my family as well. I look forward to see what this path brings us. Rock On!"
