Community partner grants
Announcement: Change in grant process
Park Nicollet Foundation is grateful for the many dedicated community organizations interested in partnering with us. The work these organizations do changes lives and improves our community.
Moving forward, Park Nicollet Foundation has made some significant changes to our grant making process. After many months of difficult discussion the Foundation Board of Directors has recognized the need to redirect our limited philanthropic resources to ensuring the sustainability of our Foundation signature programs:
- School-based health resource centers, which provide free health care to children from birth through high school graduation in St. Louis Park, Burnsville, Brooklyn Center and Richfield.
- Growing Through Grief, which helps children in school through the grieving process of losing a loved one, reaching more than 500 children each week across 13 school districts.
- No Obstacles to Wellbeing (NOW!), which eliminates access barriers by providing in-school mental health services through secure video technology, with access to both Spanish and English speaking therapists.
With this redirection in funding, grant requests from other community organizations will be solicited by invitation only. A refined grant emphasis will ensure that Park Nicollet Foundation and Park Nicollet Health Services remain aligned and focused on our areas of greatest strength, ensuring maximum impact.
