The Michigan Saves marketing and communications assistant supports contractor outreach, updates the organization’s website and social media, maintains a marketing calendar and asset inventory, and provides other support as requested.
Michigan Saves, an independent 501(c)(3), contracts with Public Sector Consultants (PSC) to provide staffing and management services. PSC, a nonpartisan public policy research and consulting firm, is the force behind the creation of Michigan Saves. The nation’s first nonprofit green bank sprang from a 2009 grant through the Michigan Public Service Commission to create an innovative energy efficiency and renewable energy financing system. The next year, Michigan Saves was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, led by a diverse board of directors. Once established, the board engaged PSC to staff the organization, leveraging the firm’s expertise and history with Michigan Saves to provide steadfast management services to support this flourishing green bank.
