EMERGING PHILANTHROPISTS

Emerging Philanthropists are young professionals committed to Southeastern Michigan's future. Members donate their dollars to fund the work, their voices to build awareness around our impact and their time to volunteer in the community. Members are invited to year-round VIP networking events with opportunities to learn from elite community and business leaders from our Alexis de Tocqueville members.
