Michigan's nonpartisan Office of Foundation Liaison (OFL) was created in 2003 at the suggestion of Michigan philanthropic leaders. The goal of OFL is to foster partnerships between foundations and state government agencies. The OFL staff works to create shared agendas among foundations and agencies and then to identify the investments that each can make in support of that agenda. This current assessment covers the period of April 2012 to April 2013. It was conducted by the Community Research Institute (CRI) at Grand Valley State University and is based on a logic model grounded in OFL goals.
