Great Lakes One Water Partnership

The GLOW Partnership is funded by the Great Lakes Protection Fund (GLPF), Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation, and Kresge Foundation through a grant to the Council of Michigan Foundations.  The partnership grew out of the GLPF’s interest in engaging shoreline community foundations to advance a new era of water management to benefit people and businesses in the Great Lakes basin.

The Council of Michigan Foundations provides fiduciary oversight for the GLOW Partnership, while Public Sector Consultants provides project management, regional team support, evaluation, and communications services.  Technical guidance is provided by a Blue Ribbon Committee comprising representatives from approximately 20 organizations from across the Great Lakes basin.

The GLOW Partnership leverages dollars from funders to build capacity for next-generation strategies to improve water infrastructure.  GLOW’s impact is quickly gaining traction!
