Minnesota Do-Gooders Club believes connecting with peers often leads to the best ideas and biggest inspirations, so we provide a forum where nonprofit professionals can exchange insights about our industry’s best practices and technology. Our goal is to increase the amount of good we are able to do by learning from one another’s experiences, to strengthen our own work and to raise the profile of all communications work done in Minnesota’s nonprofit sector. Do-Gooders Club is an informal, friendly environment where Minnesotans can find the stories and resources they need to take their organizations to the next level.
