Help Us Make Fiscal Excellence the Foundation of Minnesota State and Local Government

The bedrock of "good government" is transparency, evidence-based policy, and a commitment to time-tested principles of sound public finance and taxation.   Charitable contributions to our supporting arm, the Minnesota Foundation for Fiscal Excellence, advances these goals through a wide variety of policy research and public education projects made possible with your support:

  • Benchmarking Investigations -- award-winning, nationally-acclaimed comparison studies on government taxes and spending
  • Policy Analysis -- issue briefs and reports informing government tax and spending debates in the news
  • Public Education -- educational guides for citizens on tax and spending issues to improve their understanding of, and participation in, Minnesota government

Our mission is to ensure a sound tax system and public services that deliver maximum value and returns to taxpayers, to support policy-making informed by credible research and analysis, and to ensure Minnesota's legacy of good government continues into the future. 

Thank you for making a contribution today!
