Community Foundation Holland/Zeeland

Our Bridge Builder Society

Everyone can leave a legacy. 

More than 175 individuals and couples have made a commitment to support the future of the Holland/Zeeland area through a deferred gift to the Community Foundation. These generous individuals are recognized through the Foundation’s Bridge Builder Society

Bridge Builders understand the power of endowment and know that the assets they leave to the community will continue to grow, supporting good work for generations to come. Most importantly, they love Holland/Zeeland and want to see it thrive forever.

Did you know:

  • As part of our "Today. Tomorrow. Forever." campaign, we currently have matching opportunities available to those who make an estate gift commitment to our Community's Endowment. 
    • You could leverage a $20,000 matching opportunity by committing to make a gift to our Community's Endowment. 
    • 77 individuals/couples have recently made this commitment. Will you consider joining them?

Learn more: Contact Mike Goorhouse, President/CEO, at 616-994-8855 or via email.

Bequests from a will are the most common way to leave a future gift to the Community Foundation; however, some have made the Foundation the beneficiary of 401K/IRA plans or insurance policies. Others have established a Charitable Gift Annuity or a Charitable Remainder Trust.

If you are interested in making a deferred gift or if you have made such a gift and wish to inform the Foundation that such a gift has been planned, please contact us. We’d love to welcome you to this special group.

Together, we can continue building this community that we call home.

Today. Tomorrow. Forever
