Imagine a city where jobs pay a living wage
and parents can shape their family's future; where kids have caring adults
outside of their family and feel safe at school and play; and where people
enjoy the security of an affordable home. Imagine a place without inequalities.

Community Grants are awarded from an endowment
created by generous Minnesotans through bequests and other unrestricted
gifts, as well as from our funding partners. The supported activities
will help achieve a set of key results, ultimately leading to greater
social, economic, and racial equity in our community. All funded
activities will lead to measurable outcomes for Minneapolis residents.
