As an entity of Grand Valley State University, the Dorothy A. Johnson Center for Philanthropy does not have a separate governing board. In place of a formal governing board, our Leadership Council advises on our strategic direction. We would like to thank the members of our Leadership Council for providing their time and expertise to help shape the direction of the Johnson Center.
