The J. Herman Fles Society was established to recognize the generosity of individuals who have made a planned gift, either during their lifetime or through their will or estate plan, to Grand Rapids Christian Schools. The society is named in honor of J. Herman Fles, who established the Foundation in 1965 and was its first donor and board president. The society meets annually for a luncheon and report on the Grand Rapids Christian School Foundation.

Thank you for your interest in learning how you can support Grand Rapids Christian with a gift through your estate. Please feel free to talk with one of our staff members to learn how you can make a difference through your estate. If you have already included Grand Rapids Christian in your will or would like to make that decision, below is a membership form for your use.

See details from the 2018 Fles Society Luncheon.
