Michigan Nonprofit Association Blog

MNA’s Blog is designed to give you, the nonprofit community, an informal look into the issues currently facing Michigan’s nonprofit sector and an opportunity to share tools, resources and best practices. It’s also a way for us to get to know each other a little bit better through candid discussions of the topics, challenges and opportunities that our sector deals with on a regular basis. Check back daily and participate in the discussions by posting a comment or emailing our bloggers. We love hearing from you!

Meet the 2021 American Express NGen Fellows

Building stronger, more effective next generation leaders. That’s the goal of Independent Sector’s initiative, NGen: Moving Nonprofit Leaders from Next to Now. And as part of the initiative, we welcome our new 2021 cohort of the American Express NGen Fellows program, part of the American Express Leadership Academy.

This group of 12 charitable and community-building leaders age 40 and under – who, coincidentally, are starting their Fellowships in the program’s 12th year – will be expanding their access to networks, knowledge, and resources that will enhance their work in communities nationwide. They were selected following an extraordinary response to the call for nominations and a rigorous review process.

We are proud to announce that MNA’s Social Innovation Officer, Nellie Tsai, is a 2021 NGen Fellow.

As Social Innovation Officer, Nellie leads MNA’s commitment and strategy to be an equitable and inclusive organization.
