Shoreview Community Foundation
About the Foundation
The Shoreview Community Foundation was established in 2008 by a group of Shoreview residents looking for a way to fund grants to enrich the quality of life in Shoreview. The Foundation captures the pride of so many residents and friends of Shoreview who enjoy the high quality of life in our community and want to give back so that current and future challenges can be met. Donations to the Foundation are tax-deductible gifts and create a permanent general endowment fund from which grants may awarded to eligible non-profit groups operating in Shoreview.
The current focus areas for community grants are arts and cultural activities; recreational places such as parks, trails, open space, wetlands and woodlands; education and leadership development; historical preservation; and social and human services. Focus areas are determined by the local advisory board and can be changed depending upon needs of the community.
