The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation is paving new ways to connect arts and culture to communities. This month, there are two opportunities you won’t want to miss to learn more about what they are doing, and what they have learned about audiences. On October 24, Dennis Scholl, Vice President / Arts of the Knight Foundation is our featured speaker at the 3-5 p.m. Membership Meeting.
We know how much we depend upon foundations for a great deal of support – but have you thought about how foundations depend upon you to do the work they want to achieve in the community? Next month is a rare opportunity for an extended conversation about how our two sectors work together – and we want to be sure that arts and culture organizations are well represented!
“Strong Partners for a Strong Michigan” is the joint conference of the Michigan Council of Foundations and the Michigan Nonprofit Association, Oct. 8-9 in Dearborn. This unique event brings together more than 800 nonprofit executives, foundation leaders, consultants, board members, business leaders and government leaders from across the state to shape the future of Michigan’s nonprofit sector.
