About the Community Grants Process
Our main competitive grant round is currently closed. Please check this page regularly for updates, and the Current RFPs page for special funding opportunities.
The Minneapolis Foundation awards community grants through a competitive process. Before applying for a grant, please review our Strategic Framework and Grant Guidelines to ensure that your organization’s work aligns with the goals of the Foundation. We also encourage you to talk to our Directors of Strategic Impact to discuss your ideas before applying. Please call us if you’d like to have a brief conversation.
The majority of our competitive grants are awarded on an annual cycle. On occasion, we offer special funding opportunities such as issue-specific Requests for Proposals (RFPs).
