With the dawn of each new day, new challenges and opportunities arise. The people of northeastern Minnesota rise alongside them bringing fresh ideas and leadership.

These caring people, of all ages and from all walks of life, are like rays of light reaching throughout our region. They nurture children, youth, and older adults; strengthen local economies; and build bridges to new opportunities.

For 30 years, the Northland Foundation has helped these rays of light rise together, transforming the region into a brighter, better place for all.
