Organization Information


Organization: Minnesota Council of Nonprofits (MCN)

Sector: 501C-3 Non-Profit ; Foundation

Organization Mission: Nonprofit organizations promote the health and well-being of society. Organizations provide people in all communities around the state with services and assistance to help meet needs unmet by government and the for-profit sector. The focus areas of Minnesota’s nonprofits vary greatly, but nonprofits are unified in their mission to provide unique opportunities for individuals to combine their energy, talents and values for community improvement and enrichment. The state’s nonprofits are more than simply entities that engage and inspire individuals and communities for public benefit; nonprofits are an important part of the economy. Minnesota’s vibrant nonprofit sector is a steady source of economic growth in every region of the state, as well as a key partner in delivering public sector services. Nonprofits also contribute to job growth. They employ one out of every nine workers in the state. Nonprofit organizations are known for their contributions to their communities, focusing on volunteerism and making a difference. While these perceptions are accurate and essential to the sector’s work, there is more to Minnesota’s

  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production

  4. Concept Phase - idea scoped out with enough details to give an early sizing and/or to build a proof of concept
    demonstration
