2013 Un/Conference Sponsor Spotlight: Bush Foundation

The Minnesota Rising 2013 Un/Conference: Cultivating Capacity for Collective Leadership will be held on Saturday, November 16, 2013 from 10:00AM – 4:30PM at DLR Group offices in Minneapolis, MN. Hosted by and for emerging leaders, the Un/Conference will engage emerging leaders across Minnesota in an energizing day of innovative learning and dialogue, skill-building, and network-building with their peers!
Minnesota Rising is thankful for our amazing sponsors, without whose support we could not offer sliding-scale admission fees and stellar Un/Conference programming. Below, find a recent announcement from one of our fantastic supporters, the Bush Foundation, about their new Fellowship program in partnership with the Minnesota Council on Foundations!

NEW FELLOWSHIP TO TRAIN NEXT GENERATION OF GRANTMAKERS, PREPARE PHILANTHROPY TO BE MORE INCLUSIVE AND EFFECTIVE IN SOLVING COMMUNITY PROBLEMS
The Bush Foundation is excited to partner with the Minnesota Council on Foundations to launch a new fellowship program which aims to increase the number of people from under-represented communities holding leadership positions in philanthropy.
The MCF Philanthropy Fellowship will prepare high-potential leaders for careers in philanthropy. Fellows will be employed by the Minnesota Council on Foundations and placed in three-year appointments at the Bush Foundation to work either with the Community Innovation or Education team. Fellows will gain valuable work experience while infusing new energy and viewpoints into the Foundation’s work. They will also receive significant professional development and networking opportunities.
Three Fellows will be selected through an application process that opens today and closes at noon on November 13, 2013. Fellows should have at least five years professional experience and come from a community that is currently under-represented in philanthropic leadership. The immediate focus will be on increasing racial diversity. 
Visit BushFoundation.org/MCFFellows for more information and to learn how to apply.

The Bush Foundation’s mission is to be a catalyst for the courageous  
leadership necessary to create sustainable solutions to tough public  
problems and ensure community vitality.
