NOTE: This event is for nonprofits interested in statewide and Greater Minnesota (available by region) funder outlooks.

Grant funding has become an even more crucial resource for nonprofits as the economic and operational challenges of COVID-19 deepen their impacts. The Minnesota Council of Nonprofits invites you to Minnesota Grantmakers 2021, formerly known as Minnesota Foundations, an annual exploration of trends and financial outlooks of dozens of the most important Minnesota foundations AND state agencies (new!). 

A team of panelists conduct interviews with foundation and state representatives and then offer key insights you won't find anywhere else. Join MCN for one of six Regional Grantmakers 2021 events. You will have the opportunity to hear from and connect with funding organizations in your region to learn what’s new in their grantmaking and whether they are the right match for your grant seeking.

Participants will receive a recording of the statewide presentation and a complimentary copy of MCN's digital 2021 Minnesota Grants Directory (please note: a very limited number of hard copy directories are available for those who face barriers to access due to geography, socio-economic status, disability, and/or technological accessibility. If you qualify, please contact
