Stories from the new economy: Michigan Women's Foundation

This video was created by our partner, the New Economy Initiative, and does not necessarily reflect the views of Model D Media.

Though its origins are traditional, Michigan Women’s Foundation has become anything but your everyday philanthropy. Its mission remains the same–transforming Michigan to achieve equality and empowerment for women and girls–but the ways in which it fulfills that mission are evolving. Programs like the Angel Micro Loan Fund are at the cutting edge of philanthropy, allowing Women-run businesses to get critical financing in the early stages of their development that is not available to them elsewhere. This investment is backed with other critical support, such as mentoring, coaching, and financial planning.

The New Economy Initiative is proud to support the Michigan Women’s Foundation in creating a local economy that is not only robust, but also inclusive.
