  2. 50% Discount on the cost of a one-year subscription to our MN Plus database of 1,500 grantmakers who fund in Minnesota. This special help is available for $250 through July 1, 2020.

Watch for an upcoming short webinar on managing during these uncertain times as well.


A big part of our discovery phase is not only working to better understand your organization, but to conduct qualitative research to discover how you are perceived in the philanthropic community. This goes a long way in helping to determine how to put your best foot forward.
