MAVA Monthly

September 2019

Greater MN


This month the MAVA monthly is focused on Foundations and Grants around the state of Minnesota.  With the funding that we have received in Greater Minnesota I find this to be a great time for me to thank those funders who have helped programs going in Greater Minnesota.


The position of Greater Minnesota Program Manager started with our grant from the Otto Bremer Foundation. MAVA has been fortunate to have received this funding for several years.  It has allowed us to service the entire state through our District Councils, meeting travel, training and one on one consulting.  This position at MAVA was made possible with our Bremer funding and has allowed us to grow as an organization. 


Over the years we have applied for and received grants from the Initiative Foundation of Little Falls, MN – Duluth Superior Foundation – Morrison County Funding – and Sourcewell.   We continue to look at community and state foundations that would provide funding for programs that MAVA will be implementing in 2020 and beyond. 


We want to thank those foundations that have continued to fund us in various programs over the years and we look forward to working with additional grant funding in the future.  If you know of a grant that would work for MAVA programs please contact me to talk about them further.
