The Ron McKinley Philanthropy Fellowship (formerly the MCF Philanthropy Fellowship) prepares individuals from underrepresented communities for careers in philanthropy. The Fellowship's immediate focus is on increasing racial diversity.
Fellows are employed by the Minnesota Council on Foundations and placed at the Bush Foundation to work with a program team. Over the course of a three-year appointment, Fellows receive significant professional development and networking opportunities.
The Fellowship is about more than changing the face of leadership in philanthropy; it’s about infusing new ideas and viewpoints into the field.
