Give. And light a fire under inequality.

Charity is good. But change is better. This is the philosophy of Community Shares of Minnesota, a funder of 40 local nonprofits that are tackling hard issues at their core, rather than just addressing symptoms. Member groups focus primarily on improving access to education and healthcare, promoting human rights, securing safe and affordable housing, strengthening communities and creating change through the arts.







"Community Shares makes it easy for me and my colleagues by coming to our workplace and providing us the opportunity to play a larger role in our communities."
