The 42 Acres Fund Request Update


August 26, 2019

We are very close to reaching the 25% matching funds of $800,000 needed to receive a $2,400,000 grant from the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund for the purchase of the 42 Acres (Grand Beach Nature Preserve).

After a donation of 10% of the land value or $312,000 from Grand Beach Land Development, a Pokagon Fund grant of $58,000, many generous donations from residents and friends, a fundraiser and a wonderful offer from a resident to match new donations received, we only need $18,492 to reach our goal. Let's do this Grand Beach!!

Thank you very much for your support and donations!

Checks made payable to the Village of Grand Beach should be sent to 48200 Perkins Blvd., Grand Beach, MI 49117.

With Sincere Thanks,

Debbie Lindley
Grand Beach Village Council President
