Fourteen grants ranging from $1,100 to $40,000 will support a wide
variety of initiatives, including the purchase of new equipment and the
enhancement or expansion of services.

"The spring grants fund a wide range of services that will further our
mission to promote the health and well being of the community in West
Michigan," said Foundation Chief Development Officer Laura Staskiewicz.

The 2007 spring grants include:
