Thursday, March 17, 2016

Minnesota Philanthropy Partners (MN Partners) is pleased to announce that Carolyn Egeberg has been named vice president of strategy and communications. She will join MN Partners in April.

In this newly created role, Egeberg will lead the Foundations’ efforts to deepen implementation of the strategic framework adopted in 2014, with a particular emphasis on donor engagement. She will also align the Foundations’ Information Technology, Human Resources and Marketing/Communications efforts.

“Carolyn is uniquely skilled for this leadership role. She brings with her more than 14 years of successfully partnering with executive teams and boards to define and execute strategies that help ensure that organizational mission and vision are fulfilled, said Dr. Eric J. Jolly, president and CEO of MN Partners. “We are thrilled that she has decided to join us.”

Egeberg joins MN Partners after nearly three years as the vice president for development at The Science Museum of Minnesota. As a key member of the Museum’s leadership team, Egeberg was responsible for leading efforts to secure funds to support the Museum’s programming and campaigns.

Before the Museum, Egeberg spent more than 10 years at 3M, leading technical teams to commercialize highly innovative products for the medical device and transportation industries. She also spent 11 years with CaringBridge, a nonprofit organization globally serving more than 40 million people a year. Under her leadership, CaringBridge raised more than $43 million and cultivated a base of more than 600,000 donors.

Egeberg has a B.S. in Computer Science and completed her M.A. in Philanthropy & Development from Saint Mary’s University in Winona.

“I am very honored and excited to join Minnesota Philanthropy Partners to lead the strategic and communication initiatives of the organization,” Egeberg said. “Community foundations have an increasingly critical responsibility to support the health and well-being of communities. I look forward to partnering with Dr. Jolly, the executive team, the board, and community members to ensure we are continuing to focus on critical initiatives and outcomes for the state of Minnesota.”
