Minnesota Early Childhood Initiative 10th Anniversary

Children are the unique and beautiful building blocks of our future. In 2003, The McKnight Foundation along with the Northland Foundation and the five other Minnesota Initiatives Foundations (MIFs) joined forces to launch the Minnesota Early Childhood Initiative … A Campaign for our Youngest Children to help rural communities support their young children and families. Today, the MIFs have established over 90 community-driven coalitions in Greater Minnesota, 12 of which are located in northeastern Minnesota.
