Working Groups

Working Groups

Working Groups are places for MCF members to explore issues together from a public policy and systems change angle. Working groups engage in peer learning and networking, promote awareness of the issue among other grantmakers, and develop policy reform recommendations for MCF’s public policy agenda. The issue focus of the working group must align with MCF’s public policy goal of creating a more prosperous, inclusive and equitable Minnesota by eliminating disparities. Each working group has in-person meeting opportunities and an associated online community on the Hub. MCF support for working groups is a member benefit.

Looking to join an MCF working group? Contact the MCF lead or request membership via the Hub.
