Joint Affinity Groups

MCF members represent a variety of diverse funders with varied funding interests. We believe that the work of grantmakers is strengthened by bringing together the various special interest and affinity groups to allow members with common interests to learn and share together.

MCF is proud to partner with the following local Joint Affinity Groups. For a list of national affinity groups, see the national Council on Foundations website.

MCF is also part of an active network of nonprofit support agencies in Minnesota. Learn more about them on our Nonprofit Allies page.
