Our Story

Co.act Detroit launched in 2019 to respond to systemic challenges within the nonprofit sector. We were conceived through a collaborative process that brought together diverse perspectives from Detroit nonprofits, funders, entrepreneurs, and service providers to explore innovative solutions.

As an organization dedicated to testing new approaches for elevating nonprofit capacity, Co.act opened its doors and quickly built a culture of collaboration. We became a trusted member of the nonprofit ecosystem, working to advance equity and drive transformational change.

Co.act provides exceptional in-person and virtual programs rooted in local wisdom and national best practices. We aim to meet organizations where they are and provide tailored resources to help nonprofits achieve their missions. Fostering connections, sharing knowledge, and leveraging cross-sector resources remain core to our approach.
