Established in 1992, the Dorothy A. Johnson Center for Philanthropy is an academic center of excellence within the College of Community and Public Service at Grand Valley State University in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
The Johnson Center for Philanthropy serves nonprofit organizations, foundations, and others that seek to transform their communities for the common good, and who adapt to constantly changing community conditions.
We are an academic center focused on increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of the charitable sector. Our work involves conducting research, teaching effective practices, and providing pathways to service. We work extensively in West Michigan and throughout the state of Michigan, nationally, and internationally.
We make a difference by: enhancing the impact of foundations nationally and nonprofit organizations regionally, improving the quality of community decision-making with community members in West Michigan, and encouraging a habit of civic engagement among students, staff, and faculty at GVSU.
