Join us at Summit Brewing for the chapter meeting and a unique happy-hour conversation with local business leaders about “the business of doing good” – incorporating philanthropy into a for-profit business model.


Chapter Meeting:
The AFP Mentorship Program

Four AFP-MN members who have participated in the AFP Mentorship program will talk about the benefits of mentorship from both the mentor and mentee side and where to start.  They will provide some tools you can use as you develop your own mentorship relationships.

Summit Brewing Company has a long history of charitable giving in our community. Each year, Summit donates thousands of dollars in product and merchandise to local organizations and causes.

Sunrise Bank, a registered B Corp, seeks to radically change the way urban communities and underserved people thrive by empowering them to achieve their aspirations. B Corps are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.

Love Your Melon was founded in an entrepreneurship class at the University of St. Thomas in 2012 with the simple idea of putting a hat on every child battling cancer in America. Fifty percent of profits from the sale of all Love Your Melon products is given to Love Your Melon’s nonprofit partners in the fight against pediatric cancer. To date, they have donated over $2.6 million and over 110,000 hats.

Join us at Summit Brewing in St Paul for this stimulating conversation. All registrations come with a ticket good for a beer or root beer, and light hors d’oeuvres will be served.

The business of doing good never tasted so good!
