Why do you think it’s important for your business or organization to support nonprofits and community organizations in Southeast Michigan and what kind of positive impact do you think your work could have?
Nonprofits are crucial to the Southeast Michigan community. When considering the vitality of a region the media tend to focus on the strength of businesses and the public education system. The important role nonprofits and civic groups contribute are often neglected even though they are foundational to the capacity of a region to both thrive and respond to hard times. Nonprofits, and their unsung and invisible s/heros, are also the vehicle through which so much social change happens. The best ones articulate and implement visions of a better world or community as it relates to their particular mission and focus. They also provide individuals the opportunity to fulfill their own passions and interests by joining forces with others who are like-minded. Co.act Detroit and its partners have done an excellent job documenting the input of regional non-profits about their needs and the specific kind of help they want. Moreover, the nonprofit community has articulated guiding principles and values for how capacity builders can partner with them. There is broad consensus about what help is needed, how support should be provided and where it should start. My work, broadly speaking, focuses on building the capacity of nonprofits to articulate a compelling vision and mission, plan strategically, deliver innovative services and leverage their influence to benefit the larger community.
