raised by 65 people

Together we can continue to meet the community’s needs during these unprecedented times.

The past two years have been challenging for everyone, yet the Shoreview Community Foundation has remained a strong and active partner in the community thanks to our supporters.  For over 12 years the Foundation has made it possible for public-spirited citizens, with varied interests and capacities for giving, to participate in philanthropic activities for the benefit of our community.  People and organizations that make a real difference in the lives of our citizens have benefited from grants provided by the Foundation.  Your contribution today means we can continue to support our shared goals of improving lives and making a difference in this great community.*

In addition to addressing immediate and emergent needs related to COVID-19, the Foundation continues to support: arts & cultural organizations; parks, trails and recreation; human service organizations; historical preservation; community enhancement and leadership development.


The Shoreview Community Foundation’s mission is to maintain, enhance and enrich the quality of life in Shoreview by connecting the generosity of our residents with the community’s evolving needs.

We are focused on making Shoreview a more just, prosperous, enjoyable, healthy, and attractive place to live.

The Shoreview Community Foundation (SCF) was established in 2008 by community leaders who understood that the solutions to some community needs were more suited to citizen initiative than to governmental action. Owing to this insight, for the past twelve years the SCF has awarded financial support to trusted non-profit grantees, who, in turn, have provided valuable, targeted services in the Shoreview area.

Donations to the Foundation are tax-deductible gifts and create a permanent general endowment fund from which grants may be awarded to non-profit groups operating in Shoreview.

Here are a couple testimonials from past grant recipients:

"Your generous support enables the people we serve reach their personal goals and potential through individualized services and supports. Your gift helps remove barriers, offer creative solutions, see opportunities, and turn hope into success. While the majority of the peoples we serve have intellectual or developmental disabilities, we also support adults living with mental health issues, significant medical and physical disabilities, traumatic brain injuries and other challenges. Your gift makes a difference in their lives."

"This year we were faced with extra challenges. The Foundation’s grant enabled us to meet these challenges in the areas of Sound, Lighting, Staging and Publicity. Thank you!"
--Mounds View Community Theatre--

"Thank you for your grant to help us build a client hospitality area in our Shoreview office waiting room. This will significantly bring us closer to becoming a trauma-informed care organization, enabling us to enhance our quality of care resulting in a stronger relationship between trauma survivors and providers. Through your generous support, we are making a difference in the lives of people in our community."
