The Grosse Pointe Shores Improvement Foundation

  • is an all-volunteer organization that raises funds for the improvement of the community through membership dues, contributions, gifts to the Endowment Fund, bequests, memorials, and other fundraising activities

  • responds to the need for improvements which, as a rule, are not provided for in a municipal budget

  • provides private means for the continuous improvement and conservation of the physical beauty of the Village of Grosse Pointe Shores, a Michigan City

  • makes a significant contribution toward making Grosse Pointe Shores a more enjoyable place in which to live

The Foundation is a Michigan nonprofit corporation, having been granted tax exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. It is managed by a Board of Trustees of up to 42 GPSIF members,  who are representative of the Shores community.
