About this grant

The Great Lakes Islands Alliance is a project of the Stewardship Network, a national organization based in the Great Lakes region with strengths in strategic planning, fiduciary management and organizational development. The project is a fledgling network of leaders from 15 Great Lakes islands with year-round populations. With previous support from the Mott Foundation, the project established clarity on policy and communications; recommendations for governance and stability; and goals and action plans for the coming years. With renewed support to the Stewardship Network, the project will execute plans to advance stewardship of island natural resources, help enhance the stability of island communities and pursue plans to formalize governance procedures and financial planning.
