Nonprofit Membership

When your nonprofit joins the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits (MCN), it is immediately connected to a network of 2,200 organizations that spans all budget sizes, geographic regions, and activity areas in the state and region.

As one of the largest state associations of nonprofits in the U.S., MCN draws upon the expertise and knowledge of this network to develop programs and services that inform, promote, connect, and strengthen individual nonprofits and the nonprofit sector.

As an MCN nonprofit member, you will gain access to a variety of member benefits that will help you and your organization: stay informed; save time and money; network with other nonprofits and peers; learn from important sector research; advocate for the nonprofit sector, and; award leading nonprofits. Plus, with membership dues levels that are based on a nonprofit's budget size, the affordability of membership won't drain your organization's valuable resources.
