Together we can strengthen the place we call home

Our Foundation’s mission is to make the region a better place to live and work.

We seek to strengthen these assets by investing our own resources in their development, working with partners in the public and private sectors to align resources around common priorities, and promoting the transfer of personal wealth to make additional resources available.

NMF’s total assets now exceed $70 million.  For this, we have many donors to thank both small and large. Most are local individuals who love Northwest Minnesota and want to see it become an even better place to live and work.  But our biggest thanks go to the McKnight Foundation, for investing nearly $46 million in our success. For this, we and the people of the region owe an enormous debt of gratitude.

Together, we can make this region an even better place to live and work. A contribution of any size is greatly appreciated, thank you!
