The Council of Michigan Foundations (CMF) contracted with PPA to facilitate the Michigan Philanthropy COVID-19 Working Group, which consisted of stakeholders from across the philanthropic sector to build greater understanding of the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, develop responses, and create an equity-focused framework for collective action to guide resources and coordinate response strategies.

The Working Group, with the help of PPA, developed the Building an Equitable Future Together policy framework (attached below), which now serves as a timely, focused, and strategic platform to advance the interests and priorities of Michigan philanthropy.

The framework is anchored by three policy domains: public health, education, and economic prosperity. PPA provided strategic consultation, facilitation services, and policy research support to manage the Working Group and to elevate the domains within state government. CMF’s Government Relations Public Policy Committee (GRPCC), which advances Michigan philanthropy’s public policy agenda, has embedded the policy framework into their ongoing activities.
