The Michigan Nonprofit Association (MNA) in Lansing announced it has promoted Kelley Kuhn to president and CEO, succeeding the outgoing Donna Murray-Brown.

“We couldn’t be more excited about MNA’s future under Kelley’s leadership,” says Scott Schropp, board chair of MNA. “Our national search brought in more than 160 top applicants from across the U.S., but Kelley’s credentials and proven, capable leadership were unsurpassed. Moreover, her demonstrated leadership in supporting diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice for all Michigan residents is in keeping with our future efforts.”

Kuhn has been with MNA since 2008, currently serving as its vice president. She served as the director of the Jackson Nonprofit Support Center and provided executive-level services to the Jackson County Community Foundation and the Jackson Chamber of Commerce. Her new role will be effective Jan. 1, 2022.

“As difficult as it is for me to leave the Michigan Nonprofit Association, I am overjoyed to know that it is going to be in the hands of Kelley Kuhn’s proven leadership,” says Murray-Brown. “I have had the pleasure to serve Michigan’s nonprofit sector alongside Kelley Kuhn for the last 12 years.

“Her thoughtful leadership, coupled with her heart for doing good in communities across the state, will ensure the strength and capacity of the MNA for years to come. I look forward to cheering her on as she accomplishes great things.”
