Fast Forward is the Minnesota Council on Foundation’s (MCF) audio program that features conversations with big thinkers in the field of philanthropy.
Through these interviews, listeners learn about the latest trends in Minnesota grantmaking, gain insights on strategies behind important philanthropic efforts, learn about new resources from their peers, and come away inspired with ideas and approaches they can take back to your organization.
Bob Tracy, MCF's director of public policy and communications, talks to George Cheung about The Joyce Foundation's democracy strategy, the meaning of civic engagement grantmaking and resources grantmakers can use to learn more.
MCF president Trista Harris speaks with Jenny Harms, network manager at the national Council on Foundations. They discuss the benefits of infusing regional foundation associations, such as MCF, with ideas from across the country.
