Historical Documents

Card catalog

Historical documents embedded in OSoG’s Chapters, Project Profiles, and Leader Profiles tell the story of Michigan philanthropy. Key documents from Council of Michigan Foundations, Dorothy A. Johnson Center for Philanthropy, Michigan Community Service Commission, and Michigan Nonprofit Association were scanned, organized, and preserved for learning and research. Each year, this database grows as these organizations release additional documentation – and as our research continues.

GVSU Library and Archives

Many thanks to the GVSU Library and Archives for their support in building OSoG’s database and for storing and maintaining all historical documents. Unedited versions of transcripts and video/audio interviews are available on-site at the library for researchers.
