Northland Foundation

The Northland Foundation invests in people and communities for a thriving Northeast Minnesota. Our region includes seven counties and all or parts of five Native nations with which we share geography. We provide grantmaking, business lending and technical assistance, KIDS PLUS operating program, and various special programs including the Indigenous-led Maada’ookiing initiative. As a publicly supported foundation, our work is funded with the help of generous foundation, government, business, service organization, and individual partners and donors.
