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.







"I believe the collective strength of Community Shares of Minnesota's progressive member organizations creates a viable, long term, and stable coalition that effectively enacts systemic change that benefits all in our society."
