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.
