Welcome to our Minnesota program partner

February 7, 2024

We're excited to share that the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation is our newest community grant partner! They will operate Bush Prize: Minnesota and a grant program that supports community-based problem solving across Minnesota communities. 

They join three other community grant partners working within their communities to design grant programs that are flexible, and reflect and support problem solving in their local communities. They are: Strengthen ND, South Dakota Community Foundation, and Good Relatives Collaborative. Each partner was selected because of their strong leadership, deep understanding of their communities and experience creating grantmaking programs with community-centered selection processes. 

While we've worked with community partners in our grantmaking for years, we shifted to this new approach to deepen our partnerships even further, by sharing more power in our grantmaking so that we can be a stronger force for equitable change in our region. We believe this change will help get funding to more communities and organizations to inspire and support creative problem solving for greater impact. 

We are excited for this partnership and can't wait to do great work together! Check out their full announcement and be sure to sign up for their newsletter to stay informed.
