Staff Team – COVID-19 and Remote Work
The Northland Foundation staff is working remotely at this time. Thanks to technology, we can continue serving northeastern Minnesota with grantmaking, small business assistance and lending, KIDS PLUS programming, Early Learning Scholarships, and other initiatives.
Email is the best way to reach us. Contact a specific individual using the directory, below, or message our general inbox.
While in-person meetings are on hold, we are able to host meetings and trainings using online platforms such as Zoom and Webex. Watch for Northland Foundation events and program news via email and social media: Northland Foundation Facebook, KIDS PLUS Facebook, and Twitter and news about Maada'ookiing on Facebook and Instagram.
