Senior Program Director gnorthington@propelnonprofits.org 612.249.6672

I’ve spent my career fostering relationships while working either for or with nonprofit organizations. I began as a marketing professor at liberal arts colleges in Iowa and Missouri before moving to the Twin Cities. Here I got to support the performing arts by marketing the Guthrie Theater and the Minnesota Opera, and then marketed Target’s support of nonprofits across the country before managing Target’s Foundation and its national arts and food philanthropic portfolios.

Becoming part of Propel Nonprofits’ team has allowed me to combine my passions in nonprofits, relationship management, and teaching/training into one position as I partner with nonprofit organizations as they add such incredible vitality to our communities.
