If You Are Interested in Making a Donation

GCH Heritage Foundation is a licensed Michigan non-profit foundation organized under the IRS code 501-C-3.  Our EIN is 38-2645157.

Donations to our Foundation are tax deductible, but that depends upon your specific tax status and you should verify with a tax accountant about your ability to deduct.  Whether you are able to deduct or not, you can be assured your donated funds will be used for the benefit of children’s health services in our community.

At this time, we are not able to accept donations using a credit card, but personal and business checks are welcomed.  You will receive a thank you letter that will document your kind contribution.

Please make you checks payable and send to the following address:

If Your Organization Might be Interested in Applying for a Grant

In the section About Us, we describe the primary intent of our grants.  Our interest is to support smaller not-for-profit providers who often don’t have the capital to invest in new and creative approaches for children’s health services. Also, although we are based in Western Wayne County, Michigan, we are interested in programs in areas that immediately abut to our communities.

Our process is not a competitive one.  We search out organizations that appear to initially meet our objectives and we engage in discussions to determine the interest and eligibility  on both sides.  If the preliminary review looks positive, a full application and review procedure is started.

If your organization seems to fit our interest purposes and geographical area and would like to begin a conversation, please complete the contact form to the right and someone will follow-up shortly.  Thanks you for your interest!

Join hands with us for a better life and beautiful future.
