The Mapleton Area Foundation is a permanent endowment fund created to benefit the people of the Mapleton community. We believe in the power of connecting people, ideas and the resources to benefit all.


Contributions from individuals, families, businesses and charitable organizations build the endowment. Annual earnings are then used to support area needs and interests. The Foundation operates under the direction of the MAF Advisory Board which is comprised if responsible individuals who represent the community. the fund itself is managed by the Southern Minnesota Initiative foundation, a public charity that manages and administers funds for the benefit of organizations and communities throughout Minnesota.
