As nonprofits address challenges impacting your bottom line, daily operations, and staff wellness and capacity, there is no better time to gather and generate ideas, share resources, strategize, and support each other in remaining hopeful that an abundant future for all is possible. 

Join the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits and Propel Nonprofits for the 2023 Nonprofit Finance & Sustainability Conference — offered as a two-day virtual format — to learn how to proactively respond to the change and challenge in Minnesota’s nonprofit sector.

Hone your skills around accounting, employee recruiting and retention, data security, negotiating benefits, business modeling, and equitable fiscal leadership.
