About this grant
This general purpose grant to the Michigan Nonprofit Association will allow it to continue its mission to strengthen the nonprofit sector in Michigan and expand its work in the areas of accountability, governance, and transparency. In the past year, the association has offered events and trainings attended by thousands of individuals, increased capacity building support to Michigan nonprofits, and compiled research and information on the status and needs of the nonprofit sector in the state. During the grant period, the association will place special emphasis on public policy and advocacy work, including educating policymakers on critical issues impacting Michigan nonprofits, keeping the state’s nonprofits informed of the issues that impact the sector, and providing tools to help nonprofits become more effective advocates.
