Minnesota Council of Nonprofits
The Minnesota Council of Nonprofits (MCN) has a mission to “inform, promote, connect and strengthen individual nonprofits and the nonprofit sector”. MCN has been addressing a pressing need for cost-effective, accessible trainings that would strengthen nonprofit leaders’ professional development, build leadership skills and encourage nonprofits to best practices. In 2017 the Lloyd K. Johnson Foundation awarded MCN a $10,000 grant to provide scholarships for new e-Learning opportunities for nonprofit leaders in the Foundation’s service area. These scholarships dramatically reduce workshop fees, thereby increasing access to valuable trainings, especially among smaller organizations with limited financial resources.
