Community Partnerships

We invest in community-led solutions by identifying, funding and advocating for promising ideas that build capacity and magnify impact.

We believe those living in a community are best placed to identify the solutions to any challenges they face. We are proud to support agents and agencies of change across the state of Minnesota.

Community Initiatives

We partner with organizations spanning various sectors to lead on sweeping change across the state.

Grantmaking

We support nonprofits through grants to strengthen and expand their work.

East Metro Pulse

East Metro Pulse is a biennial survey and report that measures community vitality in the Twin Cities East Metro.

Program Related Investments

These community investments provide a modest return, allowing the Foundation to reinvest dollars and giving our donors a unique opportunity to invest in the community.

Statewide Affiliates

We support local, volunteer-led community foundations across the state of Minnesota. Every year, these foundations grant thousands of dollars into their local communities.
