The Initiative Foundations

The Northland Foundation is one of six Minnesota Initiative Foundations. The Initiative Foundations were created in 1986 by The McKnight Foundation, a private foundation based in Minneapolis, in partnership with the citizens of Greater Minnesota. These independent, philanthropic organizations work outside the Minneapolis-St. Paul area to make each of their six distinct regions stronger and more prosperous. Each foundation's priorities are decided by people in its own region, with grants and loans supporting economic development; leadership development; community building; and families, youth, and older adults.
