Blandin Foundation Grant for Minnesota Organizations
Blandin Foundation is both a responsive and strategic grantmaker. The Foundation welcomes applications from current and potential grantees working to strengthen rural Minnesota communities, and concentrate our investments in three primary strategic areas of focus.
Itasca County Area Vibrancy: Blandin Foundation’s most substantial and broadest form of grantmaking occurs in North-Central Minnesota (Itasca County and the neighboring communities of Blackduck, Northome, Hill City and Remer). We support work that helps meet the economic, social, physical, cultural and spiritual/wellness needs of Itasca-area residents.
Rural Community Leadership: Blandin Foundation offers grants to support community leaders as they think holistically and act collaboratively on systems-level (embedded policies or practices that perpetuate community inequities) issues they have identified as critical to the health and resiliency of their community.
Expand Opportunity: Grants support projects that improve and align education, entrepreneurship, quality employment and innovations to expand opportunity for every community member.
