Roughly 18 months into the COVID-19 pandemic, Michigan charitable organizations have reported that revenue generated from annual fundraising events is down 53 percent while individual donations are down 46 percent, according to the Michigan Nonprofit Association.

“With donations cut in half, many of Michigan’s nonprofits find themselves in dire need of financial assistance to stay afloat,” Michigan Nonprofit Association Vice President Kelly Kuhn said in an email. “What’s at stake is not only the services and supports nonprofits provide to the residents in their communities, but also the jobs they create for Michiganders. Michigan’s nonprofits employ nearly 470,000 Michiganders representing just over one in every 10 Michigan jobs.”

Kuhn added that the association “applauds any effort to help charitable nonprofits fully recover and continue their great work in our communities.”
