Hudsonville-Jenison Community Foundation

Benefiting the Hudsonville-Jenison area since 1990

The Hudsonville-Jenison Community Foundation, a regional affiliate of Grand Rapids Community Foundation, helps fund educational, charitable, or cultural projects within Georgetown, Hudsonville, Jamestown and Jenison. 

It gives priority to projects that are community-based, family oriented, and that:

  • are capital in nature (e.g., construction, renovation, equipment)
  • promote cooperation among agencies without duplicating services
  • obtain the necessary additional funding to implement and maintain the project
  • are located in the greater Georgetown Township, Hudsonville, Jenison and Jamestown Township area
  • strengthen or improve agency self-sufficiency or efficiency
  • yield substantial community benefits for the resources invested
  • serve a broad segment of the community
  • encourage additional and permanent funding or matching gifts from other donors
  • are managed by nonprofits with a 501(c)(3) status
