GCIP in Minnesota


Minnesota is the site of NCRP's third in a series of reports from the Grantmaking for Community Impact Project (GCIP). In the newly released report "Strengthening Democracy, Increasing Opportunities: Impacts of Advocacy, Organizing and Civic Engagement in Minnesota" documented how 15 local nonprofits and their allies leveraged foundation grants to secure nearly $138 of benefit for every dollar spent for Minnesota's citizens. The first report looked at more than a dozen nonprofits in New Mexico.

Fifteen nonprofits from different regions in Minnesota featured in the research are:

  • Advocating Change Together (ACT)
  • Alliance for Metropolitan Stability
  • Centro Campesino
  • Churches United in Ministry (CHUM)
  • Council on Crime and Justice
  • Immigrant Law Center of Minnesota (ILCM)
  • Indigenous Peoples Task Force (IPTF)
  • Minnesota AIDS Project (MAP)
  • Minnesota Minority Education Partnership (MMEP)
  • Minnesota Organization on Adolescent Pregnancy, Prevention and Parenting (MAOAPPP)
  • National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Minnesota
  • Range Women's Advocates
  • Somali Action Alliance
  • Three Rivers Community Action

In partnership with the Minnesota Council on Foundations and the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits, NCRP is presenting the results on September 30, at a gathering in Minneapolis, M.N. The host committee for this event includes David Arons, American Cancer Society; Claire Chang, Saint Paul Foundation; Stephanie Haddad, Minnesota Council of Nonprofits; Trista Harris, Headwaters Foundation; Bill King, Minnesota Council on Foundations; Jon Pratt, Minnesota Council of Nonprofits; Lee Roper-Batker, Women's Foundation of Minnesota; Sandra Vargas, The Minneapolis Foundation; and Kate Wolford, McKnight Foundation.
