RaiseMN: A GiveMN Initiative

Coaching for strategic, sustainable, and relational fundraising.

You’re the expert on your nonprofit’s mission and supporters.

RaiseMN isn’t a one-size fits all program or a traditional consultancy.

We teach and coach sustainable fundraising that centers the well-being of your staff, board, and volunteers, and we'd love to work with you.

Fundraising coaching for your nonprofit

Have questions about individual giving and want an outside opinion or creative spark? Or do you need assistance building an annual fundraising plan or updating your strategy?

Our coaches are here to listen to your needs, help ask and answer questions, and co-create right-sized solutions from which your nonprofit can replicate and build.

Our upcoming calendar of events

Join the RaiseMN team at one of our upcoming events! From interactive trainings to live webinars, important sector discussions, and group-based work sessions, we’ll be updating our calendar regularly!
