Rural Funders Working Group Meeting

Tuesday, April 16, 2019
10:00am - 2:00pm CDT
Greater St. Cloud Development Corporation, 501 W. St. Germain Street Suite 100 St. Cloud MN 56301

How are rural Minnesotans experiencing their communities? What are their priorities? How are they weathering storms? We'll get a presentation on these questions and more from Blandin's Allison Ahcan. She'll be presenting the results of Blandin's 2019 Rural Pulse, a snapshot of rural Minnesotans' concerns, perceptions and priorities. This presentation will be followed by an opportunity to dig into the data and discuss topics of interests with your fellow rural philanthropy peers.

The Rural Funders Working Group is focused on: 

  • Engaging in peer learning and networking to develop relationships, knowledge, and best practices that support rural grantmaking
  • Raising awareness about rural issues among other grantmakers
  • Developing public policy and systems change reform recommendations that strengthen rural communities; providing a rural lens on MCF’s existing public policy work

This working group is for MCF members interested in rural issues. This is a MCF member-only meeting. Lunch will be provided at the meeting [the fee covers the cost].
