Friends and fellow MINN’ers,

Thank you for following our work and being a part of the MINN community. 2020 will be a big year for our organization – we’re celebrating our 15th Anniversary, planning the 8th annual MINN Summit, and continuing to grow our expansive network of Minnesota-based international NGOs doing global good better.

We are really excited to build on the progress we made last year! We organized another successful and thought-provoking MINN Summit, bringing together nearly 250 practitioners and incredible speakers from the international NGO community. We welcomed an inspiring new cohort of MINN Fellows, who are paving the way to new leadership in our field. We were also so pleased to introduce a new group of incoming MINN Board Members at the end of the year.

(Above: MINN Fellows pose at the 2019 Summit with our keynote speakers and Summit volunteers.)

We want to kick off 2020 by announcing some exciting news: MINN's 2020 Global Report survey is being released next week!

All Minnesota-based international NGOs are encouraged to register to be included in the upcoming Global Report, the most comprehensive and up-to-date list of international humanitarian groups in MN. This is a free opportunity for local organizations to:

  • reach new potential partners and donors
  • exchange expertise with other organizations
  • advertise your internships and volunteer programs to potential candidates

Watch for the survey link next week on February 18th. Don’t miss your opportunity to be included!

We're also starting the new year with a date for our 2020 MINN Summit: pencil us in for Friday, October 9, 2020 at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs. Be sure to also keep an eye on our upcoming events calendar for other opportunities throughout the year. 

If you don’t already, sign up to receive our biweekly newsletter and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, + LinkedIn. To deepen your engagement, consider becoming a MINN member or donor today.


Thanks so much for your support and cheers to what’s next!
