Flint Funders Collaborative Advisory Board

The Flint Funders Collaborative (FFC) is an innovative creation of four major philanthropies in Genesee County, Michigan:  Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, Community Foundation of Greater Flint, Ruth Mott Foundation and the United Way of Genesee County.  The BEST Project was founded by the FFC in response to sustainability issues unique to nonprofits including governance, diversification of funding, community impact and strategic alliances.   

The BEST Project is a program of the United Way of Genesee County.  The FFC members support the BEST Project as members of an Advisory Board that meets at least quarterly.  Additional information about members of the FFC can be found at their respective websites.  For more information about the formation and structure of the FFC please refer to the BEST Project Guide.  (Note: The BEST Project Guide provides information through 2007.  You can contact the BEST Project Director for additional information.)
