Who We Are


Established in 1995 by Dan and Pamella DeVos, the Griffins Youth Foundation promotes academic excellence, community involvement and healthy lifestyles among the youth of West Michigan, enhancing their lives through hockey and ice-related sports.

For a quarter century, we have eliminated the high financial and logistical barriers that prevent children from playing hockey. Our players - many of whom are underprivileged, at-risk, underserved or have other special needs - also receive life lessons that help them succeed far from the ice.  All of our programs are free, with equipment and ice time provided by the foundation. We are proud to call Griff's IceHouse (30 Coldbrook NE, Grand Rapids) our home.
