The National Christian Foundation of West Michigan was founded as the West Michigan Christian Foundation in 2000 by a group of business men and women with seed money from the local Grand Rapids congregation at Calvary Church. The organization pursues its Mission of mobilizing resources by inspiring biblical generosity.
In 2003, Randy Veltkamp was named the president of the West Michigan Christian Foundation. Under Randy's leadership the organization joined with National Christian Foundation as the West Michigan affiliate.
