Tonya Allen becomes the fifth president of the McKnight Foundation on March 1. With more than $100 million in annual grantmaking, the foundation plays a catalytic role for Minnesota’s nonprofits, particularly those working in McKnight’s regional focus areas in the arts, Midwest climate change and energy, and its broadly defined area of “vibrant and equitable communities.” Allen previously was president and CEO of the Skillman Foundation in Detroit. In a recent interview, she discussed how she’ll approach her McKnight leadership position.
