Census 2020 is now just a year away and we’re getting a closer look at how philanthropy across the country is supporting efforts for a complete, accurate and equitable census count. Grassroots Solutions and the Bauman Foundation have released the Census 2020 State Landscape Scan which features the work underway in Michigan being led by the Michigan Nonprofit Association (MNA) in partnership with CMF.
The scan outlines the unique systems put in place to support census efforts across the country, showcasing the work of philanthropy in six states and detailing their varied implementation efforts for those who may want to model such work in their own communities.
CMF worked with MNA and funders to help create the Michigan Nonprofits Count Campaign that launched in 2017. The campaign assets have grown to $5.4 million and is supported by more than 40 CMF members.
