Minnesota is proud to have an active Northstar Chapter of the Grant Professionals Association. With nearly 50 members, our chapter includes seasoned professionals and those new to a career in grants development. Members work in a variety of government and nonprofit organizations, as well as independent consultants. Our breath of industry specialty crosses education, arts, education, human services, healthcare, and other fascinating nonprofit organizations. 

Membership in the Northstar Chapter offers a wealth of networking and educational benefits to members. Our Quarterly meetings include topical presentations on subjects that provide best practices, new approaches, and trends in philanthropy. We also collaborate quarterly with the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits and the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) to host the Grantwriters Incubator. This is a free networking event that offers attendees the opportunity to conduct peer product review, ask for advice on issues impacting grant success, and discuss tips and tricks to improve our craft as grant writers. Annually, several members attend the GPA National Conference and report back on what they've learned. 

 

GPA Northstar Chapter in tandem with GPA National focuses solely on the advancement of grantsmanship as a profession and the support of its practitioners. Membership is open to all, but requires membership in GPA National, as well. Northstar Chapter membership dues are $25, paid annually. Attendance to our Quarterly meetings is $5 for members; $10 for non-members. Some events are free. Check this website or our Chapter Facebook page for event details. We also send notices about Chapter and National events by email.
