There is not a membership fee. Funders are encouraged to support the Collaboration through voluntary financial contributions or grants.
The Collaboration welcomes any formal philanthropic grantmaker with an interest in the Great Lakes to consider membership. Individuals, organizations, businesses, and agencies that are not legally recognized as grantmaking entities but award grants totaling more than $10,000 to more than five different nonprofit organizations may be considered. Interested funders should fill out the application below. The Steering Committee will review the application and make decisions on a case-by-case basis, usually within four weeks.
Please note: Members will be listed on the Council of Michigan Foundation's web page about the Great Lakes Funder Collaboration.
