MNA also will distribute and promote various tools developed to assist Michigan nonprofits in self-assessment and best practices and develop a new legal compliance initiative to build familiarity and awareness of Michigan statutory requirements that apply to nonprofit organizations.MNA, established in 1992 as the Michigan Nonprofit Forum, works to promote the awareness and effectiveness of Michigan’s nonprofit sector, and advance the cause of volunteerism and philanthropy in the state of Michigan.
