WelcomeRural Minnesota Grants image

Blandin Foundation partners with community-focused organizations throughout rural Minnesota, especially in the Grand Rapids area, to foster resilient, vibrant rural communities. In addition to addressing public policy issues, providing scholarships, training community leaders and engaging communities around issues and opportunities, the Foundation supports these partnerships through grants of money generated by the trust of Charles K. Blandin.

Since Mr. Blandin's first grant of $600 for a community park in 1943, the Blandin Foundation has approved 6,800 grants totalling $365 million.

Organizations that are eligible for Blandin Foundation grants are located in Minnesota, are a 501(c)3 organization or unit of government, and propose projects that align with the Foundation's areas of focus.
