Focus Group for a New Common Grant

Monday, October 31, 2022 9:45am - 10:45am CDT

On October 31, MCF’s Common Grant Working Group will host this focus group with MCF members. This is your chance to share your perspectives, hopes, cautions and insights about a new common grant. Together, we'll brainstorm high level objectives for a new common grant and we'll explore the benefits/challenges of using a common grant form. 

Join this focus group to help point the working group toward a successful project. After this conversation, the Common Grant Working Group will begin their work to develop a new common grant form and process.

This is a MCF member virtual event; log-in details will be provided in your confirmation email.

Background About the Common Grant Working Group
For more than 30 years, Minnesota’s nonprofits have sought a streamlined process for requesting grant funds from philanthropic institutions. For many years, a Minnesota Common Grant Application form helped nonprofits to avoid duplication of efforts, decreased staff time spent on fundraising, and provided Minnesota’s foundations an aligned method for garnering interest from nonprofits.

Starting in Fall 2022, MCF is hosting a Common Grant Working Group to update and create a new common grant. The working group, comprised of nonprofit and foundation leaders, will develop recommendations and future actions.
