About this grant

This renewal grant will support the fifth year of the Council of Michigan Foundations’ Transforming Michigan Philanthropy Through Diversity and Inclusion project. The grantee is a membership association comprised of more than 350 foundations and grantmaking corporations. Since 2001, the grantee has used the strategy of advancing diversity and inclusion throughout the philanthropic sector to help fulfill its mission of enhancing, improving, and increasing philanthropy. Building on the research, planning, and program development and implementation accomplished during the previous grant period, the grantee will continue to increase diversity and inclusion within its own organization, offer a third cohort for the Peer Action Learning Network program and a second year of the mentoring initiative for the Forum for African-Americans in Philanthropy, and provide training workshops and post-training assistance to Youth Advisory Council members, including a job shadowing program.
