MCF Welcomes Two New Staff Members

Monday, January 8, 2018

After an extensive search process, with interview support from two Ron McKinley Philanthropy Fellows and two members of the Finance and Operations’ Networks, MCF has selected our two new staff members. Camille Cyprian will be our Director of Program Strategy and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and Michael Anderson will be our Chief Operating Officer.

Camille is a spiritual guide, traditional/cultural healer, coach, community builder, artist, sister, and friend. Her passions are rooted in community building, equity, and community healing & well-being. She began her professional career in grassroots organizing training. She has trained nationwide at colleges/universities, nonprofit organizations, and large national conferences. She has 10+ years of training and facilitation experience, and is an Orange Method (OM) Certified Community Coach through Joi Unlimited. She's spent the last 3 years working in philanthropy. Camille has served as the Minnesota state coordinator for the League of Young Voters; was selected in the first class of Green 4 All Fellows; is an O Magazine Women Rule Leadership Award winner; former board member of Urban Embassy, and the former board chair of the Generational Alliance; and is a published author. Camille will lead our program team and the McKinley Fellowship Program.

Michael comes to us from La Piana Consulting, where he was a Senior Manager. You may remember Michael from our strategic planning process, which he led as a consultant. Michael brings an experienced eye and analytic approach to his work with clients, using skilled inquiry and information-gathering to help organizations craft sound strategies and advance their mission. Michael has worked with such clients as Minnesota Council of Nonprofits, Minnesota Council on Foundations, ACLU, and Albuquerque Health Care for the Homeless to accelerate strategic action, develop business plans, and lay the groundwork for effective partnerships. He has extensive experience in financial planning and nonprofit financial health from his roles as Senior Financial Analyst at the Margaret A. Cargill Foundation and Training Program Manager and Loan Officer at the Nonprofit Assistance Fund. Michael will lead our finance and operations functions and will be responsible for mobilizing the staff and financial resources for MCF to implement our strategic plan.

Both will start at MCF on January 16, 2018. Welcome!
