About the Event

Join us for this in-person gathering hosted by CMF's Latinx Affinity Network focused on building community and deepening relationships among Michigan’s Latinx and Latinx-serving leaders across the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors. 

Together, we will look for ways in which nonprofits and foundation staff can collectively address the needs of Michigan’s Latinx communities, discuss ways to leverage philanthropic capital to support Latinx priorities and learn new ways to support civic engagement of Latinx communities.

About the Latinx Affinity Network

The Latinx Affinity Network (LAN), a peer community formed by members of the Council of Michigan Foundations, connects Latinx professionals in Michigan philanthropy to build community, support current and potential colleagues in the field and build a stronger Latinx presence in statewide conversations that are priorities for Michigan’s Latinx peoples and cultures.
