VoiceGR Survey at the market Saturday


Representatives of the Johnson Center for Philanthropy at Grand Valley State University are coming to the market Saturday to ask patrons to take part in the 2016 VoiceGR Survey. VoiceGR is an evolving community survey designed uniquely to connect demographics with the opinions, attitudes, and perceptions of greater Grand Rapids area residents on topics such as ability to meet basic needs, access to healthcare, neighborhood safety,employment, education, and racism and discrimination. The data gathered from the survey is meant to help create a baseline to stimulate conversation on pertinent issues to our region. 

“We primarily administer the survey at community events and meetings throughout the summer and provide incentives to community members for taking the time to complete the survey,” says Taylor Bowe, project assistant.

The survey asks questions about you and your experiences. It takes about 10 – 15 minutes to complete.You can skip any questions you do not want to answer.The survey does not ask for your name.Your personal information will NOT be shared.In the spring of 2017, results can be seen on www.VoiceGR.org.

You can also take the survey online.


The primary goal of VoiceGR is to provide objective data to residents, nonprofits, governments, businesses, and other decision makers regarding the perceptions and needs of the community.
