Give Directly to Community Shares of MN Member Organizations

After 43 years of working for sustained social change in Minnesota, Community Shares of Minnesota (CSM) will close in 2022. Because of you, we have distributed over $25 million to social justice initiatives in Minnesota. When we opened, donors did not have all of the options that exist today. We served a key role in connecting donors to the causes they cared about. Today, many donors no longer need Community Shares to facilitate this relationship, because they are motivated to stay informed about current social issues and stay engaged with local organizations.

If you do not act now, however, our members stand to lose a cumulative half a million dollars a year going forward. If you have supported our members in the past, we strongly encourage you to find another way to do so.

Please visit their websites below to become a recurring monthly giver. If you need any help with this please let us know, we are happy to assist you!

If you would like to help all of our members survive this funding transition, you can still make one-time donations to Community Shares here:

Thank you for all of your support! It has been an honor and a privilege to partner with you.
