Strategic Partnerships

Every day, we partner with passionate donors and innovative organizations to address real issues and create lasting change. We are proud to work with the following partners to achieve even greater impact in our community:

Ciresi Walburn Foundation for Children

The Ciresi Walburn Foundation for Children’s mission is to serve as a catalyst for creative, innovative, and systems-changing programs to achieve a long-term impact in promoting education and equitable opportunities for all of Minnesota’s children and youth. To date, the Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi Foundation for Children has granted more than $23 million to Minnesota nonprofits.

Propel Nonprofits

Propel Nonprofits was created from the merger of Nonprofits Assistance Fund and MAP for Nonprofits. Propel serves nonprofit organizations in Minnesota and the adjacent states of Wisconsin, Iowa, North Dakota, and South Dakota. Its programs and services provide a holistic approach to meet the most pressing needs of nonprofits in the region, including the ability to more closely link strategy, governance, and finance.


The RE-AMP Network brings together environmental, labor, faith, youth, energy, conservation and other groups to develop common priorities to achieve goals in the areas of clean energy, coal, energy efficiency, carbon regulation, and transportation. Member organizations form the backbone of RE-AMP, electing a steering committee that guides policy formation, fundraising, and evaluation of the system as a whole. Member organizations can get involved by participating in one of five working groups and making use of RE-AMP’s many shared resources.
