Alliance Française Mpls/St Paul

A nonprofit organization

Our goal for our Annual Fund is $65,000. 

Your contribution is vital to helping us maintain a thriving and welcoming community through cultural, artistic, and educational opportunities. 

The Alliance Française Mpls/St Paul plays a pivotal role in representing the global diversity of the French-speaking world in Minnesota. We welcome French-speakers and non-speakers alike, from all nationalities and backgrounds. Each year, we host 150 cultural events featuring local and international authors, scholars and artists celebrating the diverse French-speaking cultures in our community.  Over 90% of our cultural programs are presented for free, with donations encouraged- assuring that all who are interested can participate, celebrate, and learn. 

In addition to the classes for all ages taught at our center and online, our programs in schools across the Metro-area, inspire hundreds of children and young adults to become Francophiles and life-long French speakers. 

Giving to Alliance Française Mpls/St Paul enables us to foster a community of people passionate about the French language and Francophone cultures in all their global diversity, and promotes cultural awareness in our area.  Your contribution is an investment in an educational and cultural institution that enriches the lives of all of us in the Twin Cities and across Minnesota.

Your donation promotes cross-cultural dialogue and multicultural programming in our community!

Our Board of Directors is launching a generous match to help your donations go even further. Up to $7,700 of contributions made ON Give to the Max Day (November 17) will be matched dollar for dollar.
