Nonprofits Aim to Create BIPOC Solidarity Network in Detroit

Michigan Nonprofit Association in partnership with Data Driven Detroit is pleased to announce the release of the first ever Nonprofit Leadership Census survey aimed at building a solidarity network among BIPOC-led nonprofits (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) in the city of Detroit. The Nonprofit Leadership Census survey is spearheaded by Michigan Nonprofit Association in partnership with Data Driven Detroit.

This project is supported with funding from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and data support is provided by Dorothy A. Johnson Center for Philanthropy at Grand Valley State University. The survey is open to all nonprofits in Detroit and is intended to generate the first comprehensive, diverse data set about nonprofit leadership in the city. Amid a global racial reckoning, the effect of such a collaboration in communities of color and Indigenous communities could be transformative.
