Reimagining Membership: Non-Minnesota Foundation Dues

Non-Minnesota Foundation Dues

Foundations whose primary operations are not in Minnesota pay member dues based on their grantmaking in Minnesota, without consideration of the foundation type. All staff engaged in Minnesota grantmaking are encouraged to actively participate in MCF programs.

Foundations not headquartered in Minnesota and doing no grantmaking in Minnesota, may join MCF. Benefits and dues are determined on a case-by-case basis.


Contact MCF

Please contact Kristen Cullen, MCF Grants and Member Engagement Manager,, if you wish to discuss your MCF membership options. If the new dues model creates a barrier for continued membership, foundations may reach out to Kristen to determine an implementation plan.
