Minnesota Community Foundation helps people across the state turn that generosity of spirit into real impact.
Minnesota Community Foundation was established in 1949 to meet the state’s growing demand for new and flexible ways of giving. Since then, we have worked with individuals and organizations across the state to help them support the causes and communities important to them. From our work pioneering the Radio Talking Book program to establishing a statewide network of community endowments to working with Minnesotans on issues like education reform and homelessness, Minnesota Community Foundation has provided vision and leadership for the state.
Today, the Foundation works with hundreds of individuals and organizations to transform generosity into real-world impact. Providing everything from philanthropic counsel to investment management, Minnesota Community Foundation helps make the best neighbors in the world event better.
