The Adaptive Leadership Circle is helping local nonprofit leaders strengthen their skills to increase resiliency at their organizations. Advancing Macomb is partnering with EmcArts, a national service organization that works alongside individuals, organizations and communities as they tackle their most complex challenges to offer a six-month peer cohort that uses a collaborative approach to improve organizational resiliency in the face of COVID-19’s constant disruptive change.
We are proud to share that our Cascade in the Shade project was selected as a Play Everywhere Design Challenge grantee. The project will create an interactive water feature that will transform an everyday space and help infuse more equitable play opportunities in Mount Clemens.
Advancing Macomb’s focus on being a conduit for resources and collaboration was amplified by the challenges of 2020. From partnering with the county on the distribution of CARES Act funding and encouraging collaboration in the nonprofit sector to increasing access to youth sports in at-risk communities, Advancing Macomb played a critical role in convening high impact solutions this last year.
Our theme for this event is "Building a Culture of Giving" in Macomb County. In addition to sharing our mission and impact, you will have the opportunity to ask questions to our keynote speaker, Mariam Noland, President of the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan.
