About MCF Programs and Calendar of Events

At the Minnesota Council on Foundations, we deliver exceptional learning opportunities through which members hone their skills and share ideas and effective practices on a multitude of topics. Peer to peer learning is a huge part of our skill building tool kit. We serve as a vital hub for members to connect with peers by interest area, position and grantmaker type, which creates opportunities for meaningful collaboration to advance change.

We carefully track charitable giving trends in our state and conduct other research that guides your decision making and accelerates change in our communities. Using digital and traditional media, we cover relevant news, deliver practical resources, and introduce new tools that apply to you everyday work and challenge your thinking.

Types of skill-building opportunities we offer:

  • Multi-level training and professional development (hard and soft skill, subject matter specific)
  • Opportunities to network with peers
  • Issue briefings
  • Cross-sector convenings
  • Knowledge sharing of best practices and research in the field
  • Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (D.E.I.) within philanthropic governance and leadership
  • Opportunities to connect with funder networks
  • Subject matter specific training
