Value and Benefits

Philanthropies throughout Michigan and beyond join the Council of Michigan Foundations because our insights of the philanthropic community are both comprehensive and current. So are our connections to the people and resources that will help you accomplish your mission.

From helping you build internal capacity to tackling critical issues, we have the experience, presence and expertise to educate, advocate for and mobilize the philanthropic community. But don't just take it from us. Hear what our members have to say:
