YOU put the ‘FUN’ in
Our 5th Anniversary FunFest was a spectacular success!
We hope you made it out Saturday, Sept. 26, to Holland Town Center. Between those who attended and our fabulous sponsors (Meet them here.) we are well on our way to making our year-end goal! Every penny adds up. Please consider a donation to our mission. We couldn’t give hope to Foster Children without continued support. THANK YOU!
Plan to come out next year! We always hold our FunFest in late September. Sign up for our email newsletter. From the email you want to receive the newsletter, email firstname.lastname@example.org with “ADD ME” in the subject line — We’ll do the rest! Never miss a Grant Me hope event.
This event started as a simple truck show in 2016 as a way for Grant Me Hope to launch our “Going National” campaign. This campaign is ongoing and is successful because of the more than 20 West Michigan trucking companies that agreed to partner with us. They take our mission national on the backs of their trucks with our educational decals. These 2′ x 2′ stickers carry messages about the need for foster and adoptive homes on thousands of miles of our nation’s highways. We know these stickers are working. We’ve received phone calls from other states and photos from people who have seen them on the roads. We currently have 850 decals on trucks that are moving around the 48 contiguous states. Staying true to our roots, we’ll invite all these trucking companies out to show off their best trucks, complete with a Grant Me Hope decal. Most of the companies offer treats and free giveaways.

Nelis’ Dutch Village has been with us since our very first year! Rides, games, shops, exhibits, history and so much more! Our fundraiser would never have been the success it has been without this incredible business hosting us and our guests for the day!
Sponsors allow us to keep this event open to the public for a free will donation instead of charging admission. This is important, as we invite foster children living in group homes to this event. We cannot expect them to pay admission.
Please email Development Director Lynn Yntema at Lynn@grantmehope.org to find out how YOU can support our mission of finding forever homes for foster kids! (So many, many ways!)
