GMB Culture

Chosen by GMB employees, ACE Mentor Program, Michigan CASA, New City Kids, and Grand Rapids Urban League are helping communities flourish, creating opportunity for all

GMB Architecture + Engineering, a 53-year old firm of educational planners, architects and engineers, announced today a $20,000 gift to four organizations who are working to impact students and their communities. Michigan CASA, New City Kids, Grand Rapids Urban League, and ACE Mentor Program each received $5,000 to help propel their missions and continue their work in their communities.

GMB believes education provides transformational opportunities for our communities, industries, and our world, and recognizes that we are just one part of an ecosystem of people, communities, and ideas working to foster continual learning opportunities for students of all ages. As an integral part of furthering that purpose, GMB wants to continually partner alongside others with kindred endeavors to accomplish more, together. This year, all of the firm’s employees worked in groups to research organizations whose great work in the community impacts students in many areas of their lives, fosters continual learning, and creates opportunity for all. In addition to partnering with the selected organizations to assist in many of their initiatives, the GMB Foundation is contributing a monetary gift for each organization to use in fueling their causes and programming.
