Sponsorship Opportunities

JCI Michigan is celebrating 100 years of creating positive change throughout Michigan. Our goal is to raise $100k for a General Member Fund for Professional Development Scholarships!
This fund will support many facets of the organization including offsetting the membership’s cost for attending the 100th Year Celebration and ongoing scholarships. The new scholarship fund will offer members personal and professional development opportunities by providing funds to offset the event cost hosted by JCI Michigan, JCI USA and JCI Global to rising leaders.
