Individual with Donor Wall

A Legacy Set in Stone

You can play a role in Grand Valley’s success. A great way to show your support is by getting your name or the name of someone you love on a donor wall in the Daniel and Pamella DeVos Center for Interprofessional Health.

The Daniel and Pamella DeVos Center for Interprofessional Health, the third and capstone building of Grand Valley’s Health Campus expansion, will allow for the maximum interaction between students in our over 20 health sciences programs, learning on state-of-the-science simulation and technology, and with greater opportunities for collaboration with other health care organizations in our community.
