As responsible stewards of our donor dollars, we are strategic and intentional about how we invest in the community. Each calendar year we plan how funds raised in the previous year will be used to further our mission. This may include making grants to our nonprofit partners, running the 211 resource helpline, advocating for systemic policy changes or developing innovative solutions to urgent community needs.

How Dollars Are Used in the Community

We use 19 cents of every dollar to run the organization, which compares favorably to the nonprofit sector. By minimizing these administrative costs, we are able to invest more in uniting changemakers and fueling change throughout the Greater Twin Cities.

Accounting, Reports and Accountability

Through intentional ongoing collaboration, we deliver innovative ways to solve community challenges, informed answers through data and technology, and scalable solutions built upon proven initiatives.
