Community Giving


The Central Minnesota Community Foundation has been connecting people and resources to build a better community since 1985. With more than 600 funds totaling over $100 million, the Foundation partners with businesses, individuals and nonprofit agencies to have a lasting impact in Central Minnesota.

We meet the needs of communities and donors throughout the region with the help of our affiliates, Alexandria Area Community Foundation, Brainerd Lakes Area Community Foundation, and Willmar Area Community Foundation, as well as our supporting organization the Minnesota Real Estate Foundation. For the Foundation and our donors, it's not just about making the community a better place today, but securing its prosperity for generations to come.
