Irving S. Gilmore Foundation
The mission of the Irving S. Gilmore Foundation is to support and enrich the cultural, social and economic life of Greater Kalamazoo.
The Irving S. Gilmore Foundation endeavors to develop and to enrich the Greater Kalamazoo community and its residents by supporting the work of nonprofit organizations. The Foundation’s funding priorities are:
Arts, Culture & Humanities
