El Colegio

Bringing Culture to the Classroom

We support El Colegio school, which uses a bicultural and arts integrated teaching approach to help students succeed.  

Developing our workforce

We support Twin Cities RISE! to help people earn and keep career jobs.


Supporting families

We support CLUES to help Latino parents support their kids in school and life.

Community Grants

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’s competitive grant round is now open.  Please click here to get more detailed information about the LOI process as well as links to Word documents of the LOIs for each impact area.  The Word version can be used to formulate the content, which can then be transferred to the online LOI.
