Grant funding has become an even more crucial resource for nonprofits as the economic and operational challenges of COVID-19 continue to deepen their impacts. The Minnesota Council of Nonprofits invites you to Southeast Minnesota Grantmakers 2022, an annual exploration of trends and financial outlooks of regional funders and agencies.
Registration for this regional event will also grant you access to the Minnesota Grantmakers 2022 - Statewide
live virtual event on January 13th, and the event recording. Participants of this statewide event will learn about trends and funders that are applicable to all regions.
The regional events will feature a panel of funders from your region who will participate in Q & A that will give you insight into grantor processes, requirements, changes, and priorities. This panel will be followed by an overview of MCN's 2022 Minnesota Grants Directory
, to which registrants will be offered electronic access.
Participants will receive a complimentary copy of MCN's digital 2022 Minnesota Grants Directory
(Note: those who face barriers to access due to socioeconomic status, disability, geography, and/or technological accessibility, are able to request one of a very limited number of hard copy directories. If you qualify, please contact email@example.com
