About this grant

This grant provides partial support to Independent Sector for its 2009 Annual Conference. Independent Sector is a coalition of leading nonprofits, foundations, and corporations that aims to strengthen nonprofit initiative, philanthropy, and citizen action in the United States. In an effort to increase efficiency, Independent Sector will collaborate with the Council of Michigan Foundations — an association that serves grantmakers and advances giving in Michigan — to combine their 2009 annual conferences into one. The conference will bring together chief executive officers, trustees, senior-level professionals, and emerging leaders from approximately 500 local and national organizations to share their experiences, innovative approaches, and practical solutions to address the challenges of today.
