Michigan Nonprofit Association Taps Kelley Kuhn as New President & CEO

MNA VP Replaces Outgoing CEO Donna Murray-Brown

The Michigan Nonprofit Association (MNA) today announced its decision to hire Michigan native Kelley Kuhn as its new President & CEO, effective January 1. Kuhn, who currently serves as MNA Vice President, replaces outgoing MNA executive Donna Murray-Brown, whose departure was prompted by a spousal job change that will take her family out of state.

“We couldn’t be more excited about MNA’s future under Kelley’s leadership,” said MNA board chair Scott Schropp. “Our national search brought in more than 160 top applicants from across the U.S., but Kelley’s credentials and proven, capable leadership were unsurpassed. Moreover, her demonstrated leadership in supporting diversity, equity, inclusion and justice for all Michigan residents is in keeping with our future efforts.”

Kuhn has been with MNA since 2008. Previously, she served as executive director of the Jackson Nonprofit Support Center and provided executive-level services to the Jackson County Community Foundation and the Jackson Chamber of Commerce.
