Join your colleagues and peers at MCF’s 50th Anniversary Annual Conference: Illuminating Philanthropy: Celebrating 50 years of Minnesota’s vibrant philanthropic community. This conference brings together philanthropic professionals and sector advocates for two days of sharing, learning, and connecting. Will this be your first time attending? Or your fiftieth? Whether you’ve never attended in the past – or you’ve been with us for 50 years – we hope to see you in 2020!

We’ll take time to look back at our history and look forward to our future. Attendees of the conference will include trustees and staff members of foundations, corporations and corporate giving programs, tribes, institutions, government, or philanthropic entities that conduct grantmaking from across the state.

Together, we will shine a light on the trends and hot topics that are impacting philanthropy and changing the way we do our work. This is your space for learning together and connecting with peers. Together, we form a vibrant philanthropic community collectively advancing prosperity and equity.

As in past years, this year’s conference will offer multiple chances for whole-group keynote sessions, segmented networking sessions, and lots of time for networking. And new this year, we’re offering 4 rounds of breakout workshops, presented by your peers and colleagues working in philanthropy. See the schedule for all the details.
