This is the online home for CultureSource. We are a professional association comprised of 115+ organizations serving the region as nonprofit enterprises for the arts and culture.
We work to advance the missions and works of each of our members by helping them connect with new people and audiences, with each other, and with new opportunities.
With spring also comes some changes for us at CultureSource. As many of you know, Amy DeWys, who has been with our organization from the beginning, providing leadership in development, strategy, education, membership and events, has recently transitioned out of her role, and will be focusing on other clients. She will also continue teaching at Henry Ford College and U-M Dearborn. Amy will be missed, and we wish her success in her new adventures!
Joining the CultureSource team as Director of Membership, Development & Special Events is Kristen M. Cometto. Most recently, Kristen was Director of Annual Giving at the Cranbrook Institute of Science. Prior to Cranbrook, Kristen was the Director of Development for Detroit PAL. She is enthusiastic and full of great ideas on how to create more impact for our members.
Wendy Ernzen will help CultureSource design robust programming to manage the sector’s needs, as well as manage our grant portfolio. Wendy has over 15 years of management and nonprofit consulting experience, and has provided fund development expertise to organizations including the Woodward Avenue Action Association, the MotorCities National Heritage Center, and the Henry Ford Learning Institute.
Join us in welcoming both Kristen and Wendy, and please reach out to them, as well as Hillary Brody, Jane Linn, and me with ideas, questions, and insight for future CultureSource initiatives.
