Watch the video to learn more about our work as a community foundation.
We inspire generosity, advocate for equity and invest in community-led solutions.
Each year the Foundation, our donors and partners together make over 8,500 grants to agents and agencies of change in the nonprofit sector. Our community of donors is constantly inspiring generosity, and we are there, every step of the way.
Deeply steeped in the communities our donors care about, we enhance their vision with expert guidance and a comprehensive suite of services. We are where giving grows.
Advocate for Equity
As we work to create a just and vibrant Minnesota where all communities and people thrive, we know we can never realize our vision unless we advocate for equity.
We are committed to dismantling a belief in a hierarchy of human value, with a focus on racial equity.
We do this through our grantmaking, internal work and programs like our signature Facing Race Awards.
Invest in Community-led Solutions
We invest in community-led solutions by partnering with the community to identify, invest in and advocate for promising ideas that build capacity and magnify impact.
We do this through grantmaking, including our Building Community Capacity grants and the Community Sharing Fund.
We also respond to emerging community needs through initiatives like the East Metro Pulse Report, Minnesota Disaster Recovery Fund, Partnership for a ConnectedMN and Ramsey County Public Safety Fund, in collaboration with nonprofits, businesses and government partners.
