Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation

Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation works to improve southern Minnesota’s economy and communities so that all our residents can enjoy economic self-sufficiency and fully participate in their communities’ civic life. The Foundation’s work includes a combination of financial resources (grants and loans), management and technical assistance, convening, and programming. Since its founding in 1986, The Foundation has provided over $26 million in grants and loans to improve our 20-county area’s standard of life. In addition, we have leveraged well over $80 million to build stronger communities and economic opportunities for the people in our southern Minnesota communities.
