Another big announcement from the Wisconsin Leadership Summit! Boys and Girls Club of Dane County CEO Michael Johnson will lead a workshop at the Wisconsin Leadership Summit on philanthropic giving in the United States, and will facilitate a workshop on best practices around developing strong financial controls while building an inclusive board and workforce aligned around strategic priorities.
Michael is the President & CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Dane County and led the agency on an amazing journey of change – transforming the organization from a local children’s charity to a change agent for children and families while driving high standards of excellence in financial transparency, community engagement and governance; all with the goal of making a significant, measurable impact in the lives of thousands of children and their families.
In the ten years Michael has led the Boys and Girls Club, the Club made significant accomplishments: They developed a bold, five-year $15 million plan that resulted in more than quadrupling the number of children and families being served in South Central Wisconsin, tripled the number of employees and grew their operating budget by 318 percent since his arrival.
Michael earned a BA in Business Education from Chicago State University and an MBA from the University of Phoenix. He also holds a certification in fundraising management from the Center of Philanthropy at Indiana University, a certification in human resource management from Cornell University and an Advanced Leadership Certification from the University of Michigan, Ross School of Business.
