About this grant
The goal of this project is to map Michigan nonprofits led by Black, Indigenous or people of color and evaluate their needs. To this end, the Michigan Nonprofit Association will partner with data gathering organizations, including the Johnson Center at Grand Valley State University and Data Driven Detroit, to locate the appropriate nonprofits, which will then be verified through 990 filings, grantee membership data, Fluxx database systems, desk research and surveys. The grantee will also conduct a needs assessment of organizations surveyed to better serve their specific needs. The grantee will focus on areas with high densities of nonprofits. Founded in 1992, the Michigan Nonprofit Association serves the nonprofit sector statewide by providing information and access to resources that can assist organizations in operating effectively, fulfilling their missions and efficiently meeting community needs.
