The Ray & Joan Kroc Center
The Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Center is a 20-acre education, recreation and cultural arts and worship facility. Made possible by a substantial gift from the late philanthropist Mrs. Joan Kroc, as well as the generous support of individuals, organizations and families throughout West Michigan, the Center provides a variety of programs for individuals of all ages. The community center is open to all West Michigan families.
The Salvation Army of Western Michigan and Northern Indiana has received a $1 million challenge grant from the Kresge Foundation of Troy, Michigan. The challenge grant supports the campaign to build and fund The Salvation Army’s new Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Center, located at 2500 South Division Avenue.
To meet the Kresge challenge, The Salvation Army of Grand Rapids launched “Unlock the Kroc,” a community fundraising campaign with the goal of raising its final $2.5 million by March 31, 2010. The Kresge grant and the “Unlock the Kroc” campaign were the final steps that helped The Salvation Army reach its $15 million campaign goal. The achievement of this goal is one of the leading criteria for securing the original grant from Joan Kroc, widow of McDonald’s co-founder Ray Kroc, which went directly to construction and endowment.
