Mankato Area Community Conversation

Headwaters Foundation is excited to invite Mankato-area past, current and potential grantee partners to a Community Conversation on February 26 from 11am – 3pm hosted at the Mankato Area Foundation.

The Community Conversations Statewide Tour is an opportunity for grantee partners to help shape and influence our path moving forward as we think about Headwaters’ role in supporting organizations and movements advancing equity and justice throughout Minnesota.

The purpose of these conversations is to engage grantee partners and generate ideas about:

  • How Headwaters can strengthen our grantmaking and capacity building programs
  • How Headwaters can best support movements and convene community for equity and justice, beyond grantmaking
  • How the broader philanthropic foundation community can better support community organizing

Additionally, this is a space to learn about Headwaters’ strategic plan, vision, and opportunities for engagement, and to strengthen relationships with fellow Headwaters’ grantees.

Space is limited, so please send no more than two staff members to the Community Conversation. We suggest attendance from the Executive Director or organizing/program staff.

Contact Senior Program Officer, Melissa Rudnick, with any questions.
