Council of Michigan Foundations Inc.

Grand Haven, Michigan



This grant provides continued support for the work of the Office of the Foundation Liaison (OFL), a partnership between philanthropy and the executive branch of State government in order to create better outcomes for all Michigan citizens. Established in 2003 with Kresge support through the Council of Michigan Foundations (CMF), OFL has facilitated collaboration between foundations and government agencies that have resulted in significant joint investments to address priority shared agendas. This grant renews multiyear support for OFL through Governor Gretchen Whitmer's first term, ending in 2022. OFL will focus on advancing a shared agenda between philanthropy and government in three priority areas: prenatal to postsecondary education, workforce and economic development, and health.
