Nonprofit Sector Grows in Michigan
The late November issues of MiBiz includes a supplement on the nonprofit sector in Michigan featuring comments by Kyle Caldwell, president of the Michigan Nonprofit Association, and Bobbe A. Luce, director of ONEplace@kpl. Their article on the growth in nonprofit employment (1.3% per year) during the recession highlights ways the sector is helping turn the economy around and build the capacities of nonprofit professionals and organizations to function more efficiently and effectively.
The supplement also includes articles on MRC Industries’ job programs for individuals with disabilities; increasing collaborations among nonprofits; the importance and power of philanthropy; young nonprofit professionals; the growth of ‘junior boards’ to prepare young adults for future board positions; and building organizations that inspire others to act.
