Insight Grants Still Available!
We know each group in our network is different—varying in size, capacity, and focus. And when you need help, there is no one-size-fits-all agenda. We’ve designed our Insight Services to reflect that diversity, and to meet your needs.

We take our expertise and apply it to the size and focus of YOUR work.

We can help you with:
• Board Development • Membership Program Planning
• Planning (Strategic, Transition, Succession) • Strategy Assistance for your Key Issues
• Fundraising Planning • Media, Communications and Public Outreach

Give us a call today—231-348-8200—to learn more about how we can help you be the most efficient organization you can be.

The best news? We have grants available to offset the cost of these services—up to $3,000. They are available on a first come, first served basis, so call today!
