We support El Colegio school, which uses a bicultural and arts integrated teaching approach to help students succeed.
We support Twin Cities RISE! to help people earn and keep career jobs.
We support CLUES to help Latino parents support their kids in school and life.
In addition to supporting their own favorite causes, many donors leave gifts directly to the Foundation
to meet community needs. With direction from the Board, we steward
and invest those resources for maximum impact. Our
vision is a greater Minneapolis that's vibrant, inclusive, and ready to compete.
The Minneapolis Foundation released new grant guidelines and a new approach to strategic impact in 2013.
We held three community meetings for nonprofits to learn about the changes. More than 200 people attended three sessions held in North and South Minneapolis.
We are currently in the middle of a grantmaking round: we accepted Letters of Inquiry in September for which funding decisions will be announced at year end.
Thanks to everyone who has participated.
