Nonprofits are a large and significant part of Minnesota’s economy, serving as 16 percent of the overall workforce. Along with many allies, the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits strives to work towards growing our sector, making it the most competitive, equitable, and vital nonprofit community in in the nation.
Nonprofit jobs give employees the freedom and opportunity to:
- Break new ground every day. Often nonprofit employees are developing and implementing new programs and enhanced procedures to make the organization run more effectively and efficiently.
- Learn something new every week. In many nonprofit organizations, there are many jobs to do and not enough people to do them. As a result, nonprofit employees find themselves learning new skills like copy writing, desktop publishing, policy advocacy, event planning, and accounting management to fill gaps in the organization.
