The Grand Rapids Parks Department has been approved by the City of Grand Rapids for a budget of $250,000 towards the park building renovations. However, the total expected project costs may require up to $500,000 in order to update the building to code, its HVAC, AC/heat, and water systems, outdoor patio seating area, basement and stairwell, and main floor cafe space.
While [HAS HEART] and the Parks Department will work together to pursue grant opportunities, [HAS HEART] is also requesting support from the community to help us build an inviting space for all members of our community to meet and share a cup of coffee or tea.
$450,000 Raised / $500,000 Fundraising Goal (Remaining Amount: $50,000)
Grand Rapids Parks and Recreation: $250,000
Wege Foundation: $100,000
Frey Foundation: $20,000
Anonymous Donor: $10,000

To help support the Coffee Shop, you can “purchase” any of the equipment needed below to enable [HAS HEART] to serve coffee and build community. Some items may be made available to be dedicated to a Veteran in your life as a continuation of their legacy of service towards their community and country.
