The Northwest Minnesota Foundation has established Community Funds in key areas throughout its region of service. These funds maintain a local focus and work to address the same needs as the Foundation itself, but in a manner specific to those communities in which they serve. This method of "helping communities help themselves" increases donor involvement, encourages local participation, and builds on hometown pride. It's just one more way that NMF works to develop our community assets.
The Northwest Minnesota Foundation is a public, charitable foundation serving 12 counties of Northwest Minnesota by investing resources, facilitating collaboration and promoting philanthropy.
