Minneapolis College Foundation is a charitable, public-benefit, non-profit 501(c)(3) led by committed community members. We raise scholarship funding to provide our scholars with academic and professional growth opportunities by facilitating key partnerships between the College and the community. And, we support the College in its work to provide a steady flow of graduates earning high-demand credentials in the trades or transferring to four-year educational institutions, who, in turn, sustain the economic wellbeing of the community and contribute to the quality of life in Minneapolis.
