This meeting will be in person at the UClub and offered via Zoom (link below). Please do not attend in person if you have a fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose, or shortness of breath or have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19.

Kelley J. Kuhn is the president and CEO of Michigan Nonprofit Association (MNA), a charitable organization dedicated to nonprofits and the communities they serve by promoting antiracism and social justice.  MNA, a statewide membership organization, achieves its mission through advocacy, training, technology services and civic engagement.  Kuhn is the driving force behind MNA’s strategic direction and operations.

Prior to being named president and CEO in 2021, Kuhn served in several different roles at MNA, beginning in 2008, most recently as vice president.  As vice president, she worked alongside the president and CEO to establish short- and long-term goals, evolve the organization, administer a multimillion-dollar budget, devise policies and procedures to maximize overall performance, and execute MNA’s overall mission.

Kuhn is passionate about diversity, equity and inclusion and has served as the driving force in developing and advancing the organization’s work in this area.

“We are a state association that supports nonprofits, and these nonprofits play a significant role in their communities,” said Kuhn. “Because historically marginalized communities have been excluded from things like jobs, education, and healthcare, nonprofits have stepped up to fill these gaps. Now, more than ever, it’s critically important for MNA to champion these organizations who champion the people they serve.”

Prior to joining MNA, Kelley worked for a variety of entities including the Greater Jackson Chamber of Commerce, the Jackson County Community Foundation, and the Jackson Nonprofit Support Center where she served as executive director.

She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in community health education from Western Michigan University, as well as an MBA from Eastern Michigan University. In January 2021, Governor Gretchen Whitmer appointed her to the bipartisan Protect Michigan Commission.  She also currently serves as a member of the Women’s Services Patient Advisory Council, Radiation Oncology Peer Mentor, Patient and Family Care Committee, and Patient Family Advisory Council for Michigan Medicine and as a trustee for the Packard Motor Car Foundation.

Kelley is passionate about volunteering in her local community and helping nonprofits. She believes nonprofits are at the heart of addressing some of the most pressing issues in local communities. She resides in Saline with her family and their adorable dog, Jackson.
