Lyndale Neighborhood Association

A nonprofit organization

$5,989 raised by 54 donors

At the Lyndale Neighborhood Association (LNA), our mission is to be the vehicle for our community members to shape their neighborhood. We rely on the generous support of individuals like you to fund essential programs that make Lyndale a better place to live, work, and play.

Your Donation Makes a Difference:

By donating today, you directly support three key areas of our work.

  1. Community Gardens: Your donation helps us maintain and expand four community gardens in Lyndale. These community gardens provide opportunities for neighbors to maintain plot-based garden beds at affordable rates, create valuable green space in our community and support a learning and food-security garden, which produced over 355 pounds of fresh food for a local food shelf in 2023.

  2. Education and Support: Your donation allows us to offer a wide-range of free, in-person education programs. This year LNA provided over 11,000 hours of English language instruction, initiated a driver’s license permit class for English language learners and led basic computer classes for residents of Charles Horn Towers public housing site.

  3. Community Engagement: Building a strong community requires participation and collaboration. Your support enables us to publish key communications keeping neighbors informed about City projects and LNA programs, organize events, workshops and initiatives that bring our neighborhood together and encourage active engagement.

How Your Donation Helps

Your donation of any amount helps support LNA’s efforts to build a vibrant community. For examples of what your donation could do:

  • $200 is the cost of providing water for 6 community garden plots for an entire summer.

  • $150 is the average cost to sign up 2 households for the federal Affordable Connectivity Program, ensuring that households can afford the broadband they need for work, school, healthcare and more.

  • $75 is the cost of providing an English class at the Blaisdell YMCA with room for 30 students.

  • $50 is the cost of a double-sized plot in our community gardens.

Make a Lasting Impact

Join us in giving back to our community. Your generous donation will enable us to continue our essential programs, expand our outreach and foster connections that make Lyndale a vibrant and inclusive neighborhood. Whether it's a one-time gift or a recurring contribution, your support makes a difference in our community. Donate today to double your impact through the Otto Bremer Trust matching grant. 

Your support—no matter the amount—makes a significant difference. Together, we will continue to build a neighborhood where everyone feels a sense of belonging, safety and pride.
