Proud Past, Bright Future

Now more than ever, a deeper understanding of the world is needed. That means sparking interest in international topics, expanding the borders of one’s viewpoints, and preparing tomorrow’s leaders to take on the world with purpose and respect. These are at the heart of Global Minnesota’s mission and the reasons why we’ve embarked on the philanthropic campaign: Proud Past, Bright Future.

Proud Past, Bright Future seeks to bolster support for every aspect of our work and ensure the organization’s long-term vitality. It’s a promise to serve Minnesota for generations to come andĀ support those who seek to transform the world for the better.

During the campaign’s quiet phase, generous lead gifts significantly propelled the organization toward its $2.5 million goalĀ and enabled the move to a more professional and central facility, the modernization of our brand to remain relevant in a changing world, and increased staff capacity with the addition of Cultural Fellows.

Now in its public phase, continued campaign funding will focus on:

  • Strengthening global education opportunities for Minnesota K-12 schools
  • Increasing outreach to new communities across the state
  • Engaging the next generation of Minnesotans

Be part of this critical moment in the organization’s history by investing in Global Minnesota’s bright future.


The deadline to give is January 31, 2019. All gifts made to the campaign are fully tax deductible.
