Community Shares of Minnesota is pleased to announce that Community Shares of Minnesota has acquired United Arts Fund, the workplace campaign program of COMPAS.

The acquisition of United Arts Fund will benefit Community Shares’ workplace partners and the broader community. Instead of sitting still while United Arts Fund’s 60-year run comes to an end, Community Shares is acting to preserve both employee choice in giving and a valuable source of funding for arts-and-justice groups in Minnesota. Additionally, acquiring United Arts Fund gives us an even stronger presence in workplace-based philanthropy, furthering our mission to help create a fair, just and equitable Minnesota.
