The magazine for Minnesota philanthropists

MNSights magazine is the flagship publication for Minnesota Philanthropy Partners. In it, you will find news, information and resources to help you be an effective philanthropist. The magazine is published in April and October.

We work closely with Philanthropedia, a national research organization acquired by GuideStar in 2011, to bring you high-impact nonprofit organizations doing great work. Philanthropedia interviews scores of Minnesota experts to identify nonprofits making a significant difference in an issue area, and we highlight their work in MNSights.
