League exceeds fundraising goal to grow Nokomis gift
LANSING, Mich. — A challenge to raise $250,000 for the Nokomis Foundation Legacy Endowment has been met and exceeded, Robert Swanson, the chair of the board of the Michigan League for Public Policy, announced today.
In all, a $2.4 million endowment has been created, as the result of a gift from the Grand Rapids-based Nokomis Foundation. Nokomis donated $1 million in 2012 to the League with a pledge of another $1 million if the League raised $250,000 in donations and pledges from supporters and new donors.
“I’m thrilled to report that longtime supporters as well as new donors stepped up to help us meet that challenge, and even go beyond,” Swanson said. “It’s great to know that so many care about sustaining the work of the League to improve the lives of Michigan’s economically vulnerable citizens.” (more…)
