Minnesota Disaster Philanthropy Working Group Meeting

Thursday, December 5, 2019
10:00am - 2:00pm CST
McKnight Foundation, 710 S 2nd St #400, Minneapolis, MN 55401

Please join us for a meeting of the Minnesota Disaster Philanthropy Working Group. A full agenda will be announced as the meeting gets closer. 

The Minnesota Disaster Philanthropy Working Group is focused on: 

  • Engaging in peer learning and networking to support knowledge, skills, effectiveness, and best practices that support disaster and community resiliency-focused grantmaking
  • Providing coaching and mutual aid to peer funders around disaster philanthropy
  • Developing relationships and partnerships with other relevant players in the disaster response and resiliency space
  • Promoting awareness about how grantmakers can engage in addressing disasters among other grantmakers
  • Identifying gaps or opportunities in systems and offering advice about useful reforms and sharing these findings with MCF’s government relations and public policy committee

The working group’s activities are inspired by and complement the purpose and work of the ten-state PPREP (Philanthropy Preparedness, Resiliency & Emergency Partnership) learning cohort facilitated by The Funders Network for Smart Growth and Livable Communities and the Center for Disaster Philanthropy.

This working group is for MCF members interested in disaster and community resiliency. This is a MCF member-only meeting.

Lunch will be provided at the meeting.
