New program gives MinnPost advertising to nonprofits chosen by our members

On Monday, we launched the MinnPost FAN Club, an opportunity for Platinum members to select local nonprofits to receive two weeks of free advertising on

We are thrilled to announce the MinnPost FAN Club (Free Advertising for Nonprofits), a new program that awards MinnPost advertising credit to nonprofits chosen by our members.

All this week we’re inviting our Platinum members – who give MinnPost the equivalent of $20 or more per month – to log in and cast a vote for the Minnesota-based nonprofit of their choice. At the end of the voting period, we’ll award two weekly ad shares (together worth up to $1,650) to each of three organizations.

As a nonprofit ourselves, we see this initiative as another way for us to support our community and those who work to make it better. At the same time, it gives us a new and fun way to show our members how much we appreciate their support.

We will award FAN Club advertising credits quarterly, granting a total of nearly six months’ worth of MinnPost advertising to 12 different Minnesota nonprofits each year. Each set of winners will include at least one current MinnPost advertiser and at least one nonprofit that has never advertised with us.

The current voting period will close at 11:59 p.m., Sunday, July 24. Winning organizations will be announced next week.

Voting is limited to MinnPost Platinum members, and requires a login. (If you don’t already have a free user account, you can create one now.)

If you have questions about your membership status or the FAN Club program, please contact Claire Radomski at or 612-455-6954.
