Our Community’s Children (OCC) is a public-private partnership between the City of Grand Rapids, the Grand Rapids Public Schools and many other community partners.  Our goal is that each and every child in Grand Rapids will succeed beyond measure – actively participating in our community and cultivating the skills for a bright future.  Please consider giving a contribution to OCC.

Our Community’s Children will use your contribution to ensure our city’s youth have jobs, quality after school programs, and leadership opportunities to help them succeed in life.  Your generous act of giving will bring great returns for many years to come!
