What We Do

The first stop for Michigan philanthropists, CMF connects members to what they need to grow their impact.

How We Do It

  • Advocates
    Leveraging the collective voice of our membership, we work closely with legislators, educating them as we advocate for the interests of The Michigan philanthropic community and for our sector.

  • Counsels
    Through learning programs, toolkits, one-on-one assistance, and other services, we equip members with the resources that help them be more effective in their roles.

  • Provides Thought Leadership
    We continuously monitor trends and activities in the sector, identifying issues of interest to members, working collaboratively to deeply understand those issues, and then mobilizing with members to address them.

  • Connects
    Partnering is at the root of all we do. We leverage our extensive statewide, national, and global relationships with grantmakers, thought leaders, think tanks, and government officials to get members the resources, support, and assistance they need regardless of geographic scope or issue area.
