"If there was a Mount Rushmore for nonprofit leaders, I know Jon Pratt would be there," said Tim Delaney, CEO of the Washington, D.C.-based National Council of Nonprofits. He called Pratt a mentor who helped him start a statewide group in Arizona years ago. "He was ... kind of the godfather of this [national nonprofit] movement."

...

He also has been a force nationally, helping start the National Council of Nonprofits, assisting 20 states in launching their own councils and contributing to the publication Nonprofit Quarterly.

"Jon has been a stalwart in promoting nonprofit advocacy and not sitting on the sidelines," Delaney said. "People over the years have looked to Minnesota as a great leader in this area. ... He has a fan club coast to coast."
