Legacy & Opportunity

We provide funding for opportunities aligned with MACP’s strategic priorities and support for geographies of importance to our founder, Margaret Cargill.

Legacy funding includes the Akaloa Program, which focuses on 11 counties in Southern California, along with our work with PBS, which is national in focus. Our Local Giving supports efforts across the Twin Cities, the state of Minnesota, and the Upper Midwest.

MACP’s Local Initiatives program helps address important issues within the organization’s mission that do not fit neatly within our defined domain strategies. Local giving provides one-time support for opportunities that fit into one of three themes: responsive to address immediate community crises; innovative in the solutions or strategies, and/or initiatives where a majority of the work engages, informs, represents, and/or supports BIPOC, rural, or other communities that have been historically marginalized.
