About this grant

The Council of Michigan Foundations is a statewide association of more than 300 grantmakers that provides its members with educational programs, technical assistance, networking opportunities, advocacy with policymakers and regulators, and collaborative work with leading national and regional philanthropic associations. With previous Mott support, the grantee focused on growing and engaging its membership, supporting statewide and regional funder collaborations; and taking steps to strengthen its organizational capacity. This grant increase will help the grantee support the Great Lakes Funder Collaboration’s annual meeting in Flint, Michigan, which will include two networking events for foundations, nonprofit representatives, and other local leaders.
