Mariam NolandMariam Noland, president of the Community Foundation for Southeastern Michigan, and Knight Foundation trustee since June 2002, was recently recognized with the naming of an award in her honor.

Craine's Detroit Business wrote about the establishment of the cash prize:

The Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan Board of Trustees has created the Mariam C. Noland Award for Nonprofit Leadership, in honor of the foundation's longtime president and her work to build the region's philanthropy. Beginning next year, the foundation board plans to grant $10,000 to a top executive's nonprofit organization to allow that executive to take a personal sabbatical, attend a professional continuing education or to take part in philanthropic leadership activities. The Noland Award is the second program to honor local nonprofit executives and to offer them a reprieve from the day-to-day operations of running a nonprofit for personal rejuvenation, continuing professional education or benchmarking best practices at other nonprofits.
