Giving+Together: Early Childhood Education

The first three years of a child’s life provide the necessary building blocks for educational achievement, economic productivity, healthy lives and stronger communities. This period ensures a strong foundation for future development, and it is essential that parents, caregivers, practitioners and policymakers stay informed about how to support children and families during this critical stage.

Join us as Think Small, West Central Initiative, Children’s Defense Fund Minnesota and Montessori American Indian Childcare Center share how they advocate for early childhood education in the communities they serve.

This virtual event is for fundholders at the Foundation and their guests.

Reimagine Education

Much more needs to be done to make our schools better for each and every child. Together, Greater Twin Cities United Way, the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation and The Minneapolis Foundation have been asking students, parents, community members, school leaders and researchers what is working—and what isn’t working—in our schools.

On December 5, we connected those voices and talked about the ways we can take collective action. We also discussed the findings of the report, "Expanding the Vision of Reimagine Minnesota: A Collective Education Roadmap for Action."

Community Convening

A community convening is an opportunity for our nonprofit partners to connect with Foundation staff and hear about news from the Foundation.
