We support Minnesota-based nonprofits, with a focus on meeting the needs of smaller, BIPOC led organizations. Support has included tackling mental health and wellness; addressing rural issues, including food security and broadband; strengthening environment and climate change; and capital projects that reflect these priorities.
We provide assistance and support to organizations in Southern California that were specifically named by our founder, Margaret Cargill.
