The CMF Public Policy Committee, along with the Office of the Foundation Liaison (OFL), sponsors briefings to educate members and Michigan policymakers about timely public policy issues.  The briefings, which occur throughout the year, are designed to facilitate relationship-building and awareness among foundations and members of the executive branch. Policymakers gain awareness of organized philanthropy’s impact in Michigan. CMF members gain knowledge about funding and partnership opportunities. Briefings are held on many topics that may include the following issues:

  • Education
  • Environment
  • Arts
  • Workforce Development
  • Food Access
