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:

RKMC Foundation for Children

The Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi 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.

Northside Funders Group

The Northside Funders Group is changing the way philanthropy works in North Minneapolis. By focusing private, public, and corporate funders on a shared vision of success, the group is reducing economic and educational disparities and lifting up the natural assets of North Minneapolis. Working with partners and the community, these funders are catalysts for real change—both impactful and sustainable. Their work sparks ideas, amplifies investments, and inspires neighborhoods.

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.
