Full Time Minnesota IT Job
MAP unleashes the power of the nonprofit sector in the community by increasing the capacity of individual nonprofit organizations to achieve their missions and providing leadership for the effective management of the sector. In 1979, a group of Twin Cities’ community leaders proposed to share the management talents enjoyed by the for-profit business sector with nonprofit organizations to help nonprofits meet growing community needs. Management Assistance Project later became MAP for Nonprofits, and transformed to a staff-model consulting and service group that continues today. The Minnesota nonprofit, social and philanthropic sector relies upon MAP as a trusted resource. We work with more than 500 organizations a year, building their capacity to govern, lead, and operate their organizations effectively. Through consulting and training, our experienced staff members deliver a unique mix of services to organizations to strengthen the sector and our communities. We are unique from other consulting firms due to our nonprofit structure, community vision, community partnerships, and pricing structure.
