$20,000 Goal

Minneapolis College is one of the most diverse communities and technical colleges in Minnesota. More than 70% of our students identify as low-income, first-generation and students of color. Many of these students overcome incredible odds to pursue their dream of an education and a livable wage. Our students have big dreams and we believe everyone has a right to a better life no matter their race, gender, family economic beginnings, or other circumstances. It starts with equitable access to high-quality education. 

Although Minneapolis College is among the most affordable colleges in Minnesota, the costs and the barriers of attending can still be challenging. The Minneapolis College Foundation was created more than 40 years ago with a mission of providing financial assistance and educational support to students who attend Minneapolis College.

The Random Acts of Kindness Fund enables students to pay for basic needs and one-time emergency expenses so they can stay in school and complete their college program.

The Foundation is a leader in addressing issues of affordability and access to higher education and has assisted the college and its partners to raise the visibility of these issues to public policy leaders. Minneapolis College Foundation provides invaluable support to the community through a variety of special initiatives that support students, enhance the readiness of our workforce and support the college in its strategic needs.

Your gift helps solve issues of affordability and access to higher education through scholarships, random acts of kindness, program support and initiatives that support student success. Educating tomorrow’s community leaders, nurses, designers, engineers, artists and tradespeople takes a village. With every gift, we are one step closer to seeing our vision of equitable access come to life. We are grateful for your continued dedication to our corner on 15th & Hennepin Avenue. Thank you for investing in hundreds of Minneapolis College students. Every bright future needs a strong foundation.
