Council of Michigan Foundations Grant

Organization - Council of Michigan Foundations
Grant Amount - $50,000
Foundation - Mott Foundation
Grant Purpose - This grant will enable the Council of Michigan Foundations to spin off the Michigan Individual Development Account Partnership, which was established in 2000 to support the growth and development of Individual Development Account programs throughout Michigan. The initiative was the result of a public-private partnership between the Council of Michigan Foundations, the Mott Foundation, and the Michigan Department of Human Services. To facilitate this transition, the Council of Michigan Foundations will devolve its Michigan Individual Development Account Partnership roles and responsibilities to the Community Economic Development Association of Michigan, a nonprofit organization located in Lansing. The Council of Michigan Foundations is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit membership association comprised of more than 400 foundations and corporations making grants for charitable purposes.
