The MN Fundraising Initiative is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization governed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors and operating under the nonprofit laws of the State of Minnesota.
Enriching the lives of youth by providing grants to fund opportunities they would otherwise not be able to experience.
MN Fundraising Initiative secures contracts with over 23 venues in the greater Twin Cities area including Target Field, Target Center, Canterbury, and US Bank to operate food and beverage concessions stands at their events.
MNFI organizes teams of volunteers from all over the state of MN and WI who work together to run these stands. In turn, MNFI receives donations from these venues. The donations are then used to award grants to families in local communities to allow youth to participate in enrichment activities they may not otherwise be able to enjoy.
Through our grants, youth have taken part in school trips, sports camps, band & choir trips, and team sports of all kinds and been able to attend college.
We are proud to help local youth enrich their lives!
