Generosity for Generations
Celebrating a billion dollar milestone
With roots in Saint Paul since 1940 and partners across the state, we are Minnesota’s largest community foundation. The Foundations and our partners have given over $1 billion in grants since our inception, helping to transform communities across the state for generations to come.
Thanks a billion, Minnesota
We’d like to celebrate this billion dollar milestone by thanking Minnesota’s generous donors, our partners and community organizations. Our donors are passionate about investing for good in their communities, and we are honored to partner with them. Together we make a lasting impact in our communities.
Become part of our community and find out how you can be part of inspiring generosity and investing for good throughout Minnesota.
Make a small gift. Have a huge impact.
We're grateful to Caribou Coffee for celebrating this milestone with us. Caribou is saying #thanksabillionMN with a donation to the Foundations' Community Sharing Fund for families in crisis. The Community Sharing Fund provides emergency funding up to $500 for families and individuals to pay for necessities ranging from housing and medical emergencies to childcare. You can join them with a donation today.
When you see your values passed on to others, as a parent or grandparent, you can’t ask for anything more than that.
The generosity of individuals and the generosity of foundations is absolutely the glue that holds it all together and allows us to be great for our community.
