"I wouldn't ask somebody to run through a wall if I didn't run through it with them."

Jesse Ross is Policy Associate at the Minneapolis Foundation and a Ron McKinley Philanthropy Fellow

In this episode of the podcast, Jesse talks about how coming from many years working for nonprofits makes him able to understand how foundations and nonprofits view one another and where communication could be improved. He talks about his passion for building relationships, partnerships and community. And he talks about a few specific programs he's really excited to be working on. 

Jesse’s heart is centered on community development, with 12 years of experience in nonprofit and community-based organizations throughout North and South Minneapolis. Jesse works on both program development and direct community engagement, with the goal of empowering people to effectively impact their own communities. Jesse previously worked for Young Life, a global nonprofit organization, and TreeHouse, a local faith-based nonprofit, where his areas of focus included policy and program development, organizational leadership, diversity and culture, youth and family development, fundraising, outreach, and a host of other initiatives.
