Capital and Endowment Giving

While The Blue and White Fund is the lifeblood of the Academy’s annual giving operations, gifts to Capital projects and to the Endowment ensure the long-term financial stability of Grand River Academy. A gift to the Capital project ensures our students have the best facilities available – in the classroom, in the dormitories, or on the athletic fields and courts. Whether a scholarship or unrestricted gift, giving to the Endowment creates a lasting legacy for generations of Grand River young men. Naming opportunities in the Bud Field Center and the Robert S. Morrison Lecture Center are still available.

Special Projects

Grand River Academy addresses specific projects that will impact the current student body, and often build the infrastructure for the students who after them. Gifts can be restricted to support a donor’s special interest project. Past projects include the campus walkway lamp posts and more recently the creation of the Productive Growth Center, dormitory bathroom renovations, refurbishing dorm common areas, and providing new weight an fitness center equipment.

In-Kind Gifts

Gifts of equipment, furnishings, art, musical instruments, real estate, or other tangible goods/property may make wonderful and useful gifts to Grand River Academy. Gifts-in-kind are basically defined as non-cash donations and should be reported at the face (fair market) value.

Honor a Great Teacher

By giving to The Blue and White Fund in honor of the great men and women – past and present – who shape the lives of our young men, you recognize and celebrate the profound impact our Faculty have on our students every day, every year.
