The Ron McKinley Philanthropy Fellowship prepares high-potential individuals from communities underrepresented in leadership positions in philanthropy for careers in the field. The Fellowship's immediate focus is on increasing racial diversity.
Fellows are employed by the Minnesota Council on Foundations and placed at participating foundations for three years. 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.
