Project Description

The 2020 Census is right around the corner and poses an opportunity not only to ensure federal resources and political representation are properly allocated, but to engage individuals and strengthen communities. For every community member that is not counted,  Michigan could miss out on about $1,800 in federal funds!

Listen in as your hosts, Dr. Phil Knight and Gerry Brisson, speak with the President and CEO of the Michigan Nonprofit Association, Donna Murray-Brown. A native Detroiter, Donna has been named for the second time to The Power & Influence Top 50 presented by the NonProfit Times and is an example of truly exceptional leadership. In tonight’s episode learn about the impact the 2020 Census could have on Michigan and how nonprofits across the state are creating innovative solutions to meet their missions. Head to to see how you can get involved in the census to ensure an accurate count!
