Gerken Appreciation Award
To honor and appreciate coaches and co-curricular staff who enrich the lives of EGR students and support the Jimmy Gerken Fund.
The Jimmy Gerken Fund was established within the East Grand Rapids Schools Foundation to support athletics and co-curricular activities within the EGR Public Schools while remembering Jimmy and the many life lessons he taught our students and community. Donations to the Jimmy Gerken Fund will be placed in an endowment to support these activities for years to come.
Join us in supporting the activities that were important in Jimmy's life as well as many of our students' lives. Thank and recognize a coach that has made an impact in your child's life by making a tax-deductible donation of $20 or more to The Jimmy Gerken Fund. We will recognize your honorary gift in the next Foundations newsletter as well as provide you with a certificate to present your honoree.
