Final_gf_spring_1101Diversity in Philanthropy: A Portrait of Minnesota

Above all, grantmakers want to be effective. Striving for and "“ more importantly "“ achieving diversity and inclusion in philanthropy has been heralded nationally and locally as key to more effective grantmaking. But what does this mean, and what does it look like?

This issue of Giving Forum features MCF's highly anticipated five-year research study "Working Towards Diversity and Inclusion" and focuses on perceptions, realities and best practices of Minnesota grantmakers. Research findings and grantmaker interviews reveal where the sector has been, is now and wants to be, and how grantmakers envision reaching their and the community's goals.

The issue also highlights insights from grantmakers who model inclusive practices and have had real success in actively leveraging diversity and inclusion to build strong organizations and ultimately achieve better outcomes in the community.
