MCF member Women’s Foundation of Minnesota will take home the award for Responsive Philanthropy at the 2012 Minnesota Nonprofit Awards on November 2.

From the award announcement:
Working closely with leaders of the community that have expertise on the sex trafficking of girls, the foundation has established a collaborative model in partnership with dedicated stakeholders from across the state — advocates, donors, elected officials, state agencies, corporations, law enforcement, judges, faith communities and many others — to create and enact a strategic plan and action with a clear message that Minnesota girls are not for sale.

- Innovation: Avenues for Homeless Youth
