Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Through mapping, convening, teaching, connecting, inspiring, equipping, and communicating, specific accomplishments are to:

- increase diversity of board of director and network council membership;
- expand the network’s reach across the state (urban, suburban and rural areas and cities of all sizes);
- grow the number of faiths, leaders, individuals and organizations represented in the network;
- strengthen existing interreligious connections and alliances;
- develop new interreligious connections and alliances;
- train more faith leaders to be interfaith leaders;
- enable religious leaders to be concerted and influential voices for justice and respect;
- offer special interest convenings and annual conferences;
- improve religious literacy with the aim of decreasing division, hate, and the preponderance for lashing out in fear;
- broaden visibility of interfaith efforts and activities.

We have a 4-step plan for scaling up.

#1: MnMN will invite participation by creating new opportunities for curiosity, inspiration, and exploration. Supporting projects include broadening diversity of participation and expansion of organizations and leaders across the state; development of a wider directory of organizations working on common issues; expansion of the Minnesota Multifaith Speakers Network to enhance religious literacy; and resource identification to help mobilize what members bring to the network.

#2: MnMN will bolster multifaith efforts and ideas by convening faith leaders to foster relationships, networks, and alliances; facilitate learning through training, communities of practice, and professional development; raise visibility for cooperative initiatives and encourage emerging ideas; and provide tools and technology to equip and support self-organizing. Supporting projects include a rapid response network offering support in times of tragedy and an enhanced online library of interfaith resources.

#3: MnMN will develop our organizational structure and maintain financial health by expanding relationships that provide in-kind services, hiring a full-time lead staff person, implementing technology platforms for member/donor engagement and management, and broadening our funding sources.

#4: MnMN will cultivate measurable outcomes by collecting numeric metrics that monitor transformation like improved religious literacy and developing tools to harvest that data; developing a membership database that notes and tracks all activity of organizations, leaders, volunteers, and other identifiable individuals; and utilizing options for tracking online analytics to help measure our statewide communications impact.
