About Minnesota's Nonprofit Sector

Nonprofit organizations promote the health and well-being of society. Organizations provide people in all communities around the state with services and assistance to help meet needs unmet by government and the for-profit sector. The focus areas of Minnesota’s nonprofits vary greatly, but nonprofits are unified in their mission to provide unique opportunities for individuals to combine their energy, talents and values for community improvement and enrichment.

The state’s nonprofits are more than simply entities that engage and inspire individuals and communities for public benefit; nonprofits are an important part of the economy. Minnesota’s vibrant nonprofit sector is a steady source of economic growth in every region of the state, as well as a key partner in delivering public sector services. Nonprofits also contribute to job growth. They employ one out of every nine workers in the state.

Nonprofit organizations are known for their contributions to their communities, focusing on volunteerism and making a difference. While these perceptions are accurate and essential to the sector’s work, there is more to Minnesota’s nonprofit sector.
