Northwest Minnesota Foundation



The Northwest Minnesota Foundation is one of six Minnesota Initiative Foundations (MIFs), established in 1986 through The McKnight Foundation’s leadership and a visionary experiment in rural philanthropy. The MIFs delivered a counterpunch in a difficult economy that resounded across America. Each MIF is managed by local people making decisions about how to improve the quality of life in the region.
