About Us

MCF is a vibrant philanthropic community connecting, strengthening and mobilizing the power of philanthropy to advance prosperity and equity. We do this through three focused strategies:

  • Connect
    We deepen your relationships within Minnesota’s philanthropic community through peer-to-peer learning, issue-based working groups, data mapping and the MCF annual conference. MCF members build connections through leadership opportunities as board members, committee members, workshop presenters or initiators of member briefings.
  • Mobilize
    We amplify your voice through collective action while activating the philanthropic community to be strong public policy advocates, to lead on issues of equity and to promote integrity in grantmaking.
  • Strengthen
    We increase your effectiveness and efficiency. Whether you’re a philanthropic leader or a new grantmaker, MCF provides tools to enhance your skills, benchmark your work, learn about key trends and gain recognition for your achievements.

Our Core Values:

  • Leadership
  • Connectivity
  • Inclusivity
  • Integrity
