Michigan Chapter

EPIP Michigan is a statewide chapter affiliated with EPIP National. Our goal is to develop extraordinary new Michigan leaders to enhance organized philanthropy and its impact on communities. We accomplish this goal by focusing our work in three areas: professional development, relationship building and being a voice for the next generation in the field. Our volunteer steering committee is made up of 10 professionals from a broad range of Michigan foundations who plan and implement 6-8 programs and activities annually in the three areas listed above.
