Your Gift Makes a Difference

Since 1986, SMIF has invested more than $114 million in the 20-county region. 

Since 1986 more than 1,500 donors contributed $42+ million to support the work of the Foundation. The impact of our donor support is immense: 7,200 jobs created or retained; 130 communities empowered to take action; and more than 100,000 kids and families supported.

Additionally, Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation invests on average $10 for every $1 raised in local contributions and has built a regional endowment fund that exceeds $41 million to support ongoing programming. Annually we award approximately $5 million through grants, loans, and program support as well as act as a regional collaborator on projects.
