Good From The Ground Up

Investing in Community

Building change in our communities starts from the ground up. Mick McGraw, our President & CEO says, “We don’t just build houses. We build communities,” McGraw said. “We feel like it’s a corporate responsibility to be investing in and supporting the communities we build in, and these nonprofits help these communities thrive.” When you become part of the Eastbrook family, you support local non-profits & causes such as:

  • Affordable/Safe Housing
  • Food Security
  • Health Services
  • Kids & Family Services
  • Women Services

Supporting Local Nonprofits

In 2017, Eastbrook formalized its giving efforts into a month of events called “Taste & Tour”.  Originally an event series that raised funds for local nonprofits, Taste, and Tour naturally transitioned into a Fall giving campaign that provides donations to nonprofits across Michigan. The impact of these donations is far reaching:

  • Since 2017, Eastbrook has donated over $850,000 to local nonprofits in West Michigan, the Greater Lansing Area, and Auburn, AL. 
  • In total, this giving campaign has helped raise over $950,000 for these non-profits through matching campaigns and events. 

“Twenty-five dollars adds up. There’s collective impact there,” said Kate O’Keefe, director of development and community engagement for Family Promise of GR. “That money goes a long way toward feeding families, getting cars fixed and providing day care opportunities.

Engaging As A Company

We’ve built a number of ramps over the years and have repaired people’s porches. And really, as we’ve been involved, it’s just helping people get in and out of their homes. Home Repair Services makes it really easy to volunteer…they’ve really taken it to the next level.

Shortly after I started working at Eastbrook Homes, I had the privilege of partnering with Safe Haven Ministries for our Taste and Tour fundraising event. I was familiar with the organization beforehand as one of my dear friends was fortunate enough to receive group counseling from them. I saw firsthand how this program changes people’s lives and helps protect and heal them from the trauma of domestic violence.
