"I heard Peter speak about community development at a recent national conference. His message was so perfect for Muskegon, I thanked him, handed him my card, and had to keep myself from hugging him!"

The hope of warm weather and sunshine has us thinking about outdoor recreation – our gathering places, parks, beaches, and trails. Arguably some of Muskegon’s greatest assets, most of these facilities have been touched by Foundation donors! Be it funds for maintenance and upkeep through the Land Conservancy’s Meinert Park Endowment Fund, grants from our distribution committee to provide playground equipment at Holton Park, or gifts from our Donor Advised Fundholders to bring us the Olthoff Street Stage, Hilt’s Landing, or public art, our donors are ensuring Muskegon continues to provide great places to get outside and PLAY!
