    An unprecedented challenge demands an unprecedented response.

    Because of Covid-19, our East Grand Rapids school district is facing a $2.85 million deficit.

    We can help.

    More than 62% of school funding comes from sales & income taxes— not property taxes! Covid-19 has caused a school funding shortfall greater than the one during the Great Recession. Schools across Michigan will be impacted, but together, we can lessen the blow here at home through One East.

    Any contribution to One East will make a difference. We’re trying to raise $653 per student. That’s $653 so a kindergartener can learn to read and write, so a child can learn another language or learn to code, so a child can play a sport or an instrument and prepare to play a part in the future of our world.

    Many of us are facing economic hardship in this crisis, but many of us have also spent far less than normal over the last few months. Now, instead of sending 6% of our purchases to Lansing, we can use 100% of that money to support our schools right here at home.

    Are you in?

    For 35 years, the East Grand Rapids Schools Foundation has been enriching the educational experience of our students by funding excellence in teaching and learning that requires financial support beyond what the district can provide. This year, the Foundation is responding to the budget crisis by providing more than $330,000 in program support for our schools. Over the course of students’ time in East schools from kindergarten through graduation, the Foundation, through its endowment, will contribute more than $5 million to their education.
