By Jill Ryan, Executive Director
As you may know, the Great Lakes Aquatic Habitat Network and Fund is currently undergoing some change. GLAHNF will now be its own nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization. These changes are intended to make the organization more sustainable over the long-haul, so that we may continue to support the wonderful work you do. We do not anticipate changes in services; we will continue to provide grants programs, publications, networking assistance and more.
The changes will come in the form of a new board of directors, separate organizational structure, and the potential for more robust programs in the future. We intend for GLAHNF to be here in the long-term to support community-based citizen action to protect and restore the water quality of the Great Lakes basin.
What this change means for you:
– new contact information for GLAHNF
– programs offered will remain the same
– staff locations are diversifying to reach new areas of the region
– increased opportunities for joint fundraising projects with GLAHNF
If you have any questions or concerns about this transition, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to this change as a way of ensuring GLAHNF’s long-term future. The more things change, the more they are the same. – Alphonse Karr
