YWCA of Minneapolis

An early start to success

Since early learning is a proven investment in school success, our donors support high quality early childhood education programs like the YWCA of Minneapolis.

A holistic approach to wellness 

Our donors support the NorthPoint Health and Wellness Center, a medical, dental, and mental health center in Minneapolis. 

Courage Center rides to polls

The Foundation and our donors gave funding to Courage Center to provide free rides to and from polling places for people with disabilities. 


We envision OneMinneapolis — a community with a vibrant arts scene, beautiful green spaces, world-class education system, thriving workforce, and engaged residents. We believe the ability to compete as a 21st-century city depends on everyone fully participating in and benefiting from our shared quality of life. We connect charitable resources, ideas, and people to make a positive impact in our community.

Here are just a few of the ways we're making a difference with our partners:

  • We're creating OneMinneapolis by tracking how our community fares on indicators of a healthy life and targeting our resources to address gaps
  • We're RESETing Education in Minnesota to close the achievement gap and give every child a fair chance to succeed at school and life
  • We're doubling our impact with our donors through our Matching Grant Program
  • We provide relief during tragedy and bring community resources together through Minnesota Helps.
