The Minnesota Initiative Foundations

Created as a counterpunch to the rural crisis of the 1980s, we are six nationally recognized foundations working to strengthen the communities and economies of Greater Minnesota. Though we are cut from the same cloth, each foundation is independent and serves its region with unique grants, business loans, leadership programs and donor services.  We are united by our belief in the power of people and partnerships.
