Meeting the Need Requires Urgency and Endurance

The lack of affordable houses and apartments in our area has become a real ordeal for individuals and families of all income levels. But for those whose incomes are limited, finding something decent and affordable has become a problem of crisis proportions!

Reasonably-priced suitable housing means so much more than a roof for the night, as essential as that is. It is also a key foundation for productive daily lives and a significant stake towards a secure and wholesome future for our families. Especially in today’s super-charged Grand Rapids housing market, ICCF Community Homes’ vision for equitable opportunity, affordable homes and thriving neighborhoods requires BOTH a sense of urgency AND an enduring long-term commitment.

The ICCF Homes & Hope Legacy Society is a group of donors who recognize the vital importance of this long-range timeframe. Most have been faithful ICCF donors for years, if not decades. And now they’ve chosen to extend that support into the future, typically by way of a bequest gift commitment in their will or estate plan.

To learn more about including a gift to ICCF Community Homes in your will in a way that is flexible, versatile and simple to accomplish, visit or contact Hank Kroondyk, ICCF Planned Giving Specialist, at [email protected].
