Nonprofit News is a print and digital newsletter published quarterly as a benefit to MCN members. It is filled with informational articles, timely resources, and practical how-to applications. It cuts across industry lines – from executive leadership articles and fundraising advice, to human resources information and finance and management tips.

MCN’s Nonprofit News is a useful publication that nonprofits look forward to receiving and reading cover to cover. Our readers tend to keep issues of Nonprofit News to pass along to colleagues and to refer to at later times. Because our readers see Nonprofit News as a continued resource, your advertisement has a shelf-life longer than just when the publication hits the mailbox. It is distributed quarterly to more than 15,000 nonprofit and community leaders in Minnesota (2,600 print, 13,000 email). Our readers are executive directors, finance managers, human resources professionals, marketing and communications professionals, fundraisers, technology experts, public policy advocates, and other nonprofit managers. We reach beyond the executive director to the nonprofit management staff members that make decisions that impact your business.

The opportunity to advertise in Nonprofit News, is available only to MCN associate and nonprofit members. We offer ad space in a variety of sizes to meet the needs of our advertisers. All artwork must be provided and meet production requirements.
