*For the March Fundraising Networking Lunch, Jon Pratt, executive director of the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits, will present the findings and his reflections of the recently released national report, UnderDeveloped: A National Study of Challenges Facing Nonprofit Fundraising, published by CompassPoint and the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund. The report highlights a number of key areas of concern within the field of nonprofit fundraising, with recommendations for improving the culture of philanthropy in nonprofit organizations. Please take some time to read through the report and come with questions and comments to facilitate a healthy conversation on the state on nonprofit fundraising and the role of the development director in each or our organizations.
