The Northwest Minnesota Foundation is excited to be a part of the Newman's Own Foundation Holiday Challenge!
We serve communities within 12 counties in Northwest Minnesota-- Hubbard, Beltrami, Lake of the Woods, Clearwater, Mahnomen, Norman, Polk, Red Lake, Pennington, Marshall, Roseau, and Kittson.
Northwest Minnesota Foundation has provided assistance and delivered services resulting in millions of dollars in local philanthropy being funneled back to local organizations that help us achieve our mission.In our evolving role, NMF has studied the region’s economic status extensively. We believe that knowledge and talent will be the drivers of economic prosperity in the 21st Century. Attracting talent will be key to the economic future of our region. In today’s highly mobile world, the location decisions of talented workers are based on the quality of life afforded by particular places and communities. Our foundation’s mission, therefore, 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.
The health of our 12-County region has greatly improved. Given the character of you, our partners and residents – with resilience, enterprise, ingenuity and love of community — we can expect great things. Together with economic conditions that are flourishing, our region’s future looks bright.
