• Description

In her report on the community foundation project in Michigan, Kathryn A. Agard examines the patterns of growth and development in Michigan. Do community foundations follow a predictable series of steps as they grow? This study seeks to shed light on how community foundations develop over time, and increased asset size, through a series of identifiable growth stages. The Council of Michigan Foundations provides this publication as a part of the Michigan community foundation project jointly supported by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation.
