About NEW

NEW : Empowered Leaders. Flourishing Nonprofits. Vibrant Communities.

Our Mission: We improve the impact and performance of fellow nonprofits by working alongside leaders to create high-quality strategic solutions that advance their missions in our communities.

Since 1993, NEW has been helping nonprofits succeed by strengthening management and offering solutions to issues facing the nonprofit community. Today NEW and its partners provide educational, consultative and technological solutions to nonprofits across southeast Michigan, and beyond.


NEW was created to manage the NEW Center, a facility that provides affordable office space and shared office equipment for nonprofits. The McKinley Foundation and a diverse group of community members created the attractive and valuable community resource that replaced a junkyard at the northern end of Ann Arbor, and nonprofits immediately benefited from lower overhead and on-site cooperation with other nonprofits.

Working with nonprofits throughout the community, NEW staff and leadership quickly saw that nonprofits could benefit from additional support and educational services and expanded its mission to provide a wide array of resources and solutions to nonprofits.
