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.

The Students We Serve

Lam Nguyen

Foundation Scholarship Recipient

"As a first generation college student, this scholarship was the most meaningful gift I had ever received. Instead of focusing on how to pay for college, I was able to focus on coursework and navigating college."

Steven Vanlwaarden

Foundation Scholarship Recipient

"Receiving the GRCC Foundation Scholarship instilled in me the confidence of knowing that there are others out there - people I have never met - who wanted me to succeed in my studies."
