Committees

Through volunteer committees, members help to bring our mission to life and represent our member's collective voice. 

CMF committees help to guide everything we do. Through these volunteer appointments, members help to bring the mission of CMF to life and work hard to ensure that CMF is the first stop for Michigan philanthropists.
