Make a donation!


Are you ready to Take the Helm for the students of Grand Rapids?

Join Captain H. Tanny and crew in Taking the Helm for the youth of Grand Rapids! Every donation helps the Creative Youth Center empower students to amplify their voices and broaden their curiosity.

Consider a donation of $20/month. With your support we can:

  • Expand the number of sessions we offer students

  • Keep programs free for students

  • Serve more students attending GRPS schools in Southeast Grand Rapids

To ensure we are able to keep our programs free and to expand to more GRPS students, this summer we are asking our community to give a little extra. Our goal is to raise $40,000 by the end of the school year. Help us meet our goal by donating today.

How are donations used?

All donations go directly to programming for
our students. We purchase supplies, pay for transportation,
the publishing of student work,
and other costs involved with teaching students.

Is my donation tax deductible?

Yes! We will provide donation receipt
letters when needed.

Can I mail a donation?

If you don’t feel comfortable donating online,
we accept donations by mail or in person at our location:
