Grow Your Giving

Invest in a thriving community by supporting the causes and organizations you care about.

Create the Future You Envision

As a giver, you may have many goals: support the causes and community organizations you care about most; provide for your loved ones; invest in social change. By partnering with a community foundation, you can make an impact and realize your charitable goals.

Our local, experienced team will partner with you and your financial advisors to create a personalized giving plan. You can choose from many fund types — such as a donor advised fund — and many giving options.

Why Choose the Foundation

In addition to receiving personalized service and access to high-quality charitable products, when you work with us, you are joining forces with Minnesota’s largest community foundation. We have 80 years of expertise investing in the places and causes you care about.
