Grants to Minnesota nonprofit organizations and government agencies to promote social justice in eligible locations. Applicants are required to submit an LOI prior to submitting a full proposal. Funding is intended for advocacy and capacity building as well as program, project, capital, start-up, and operating grants. Eligible proposals address social equity issues in St. Cloud.

The Foundation will accept requests for a variety of grant types, including:

  • Program, Project, Capital, Start-Up, and Operating Grants: The Foundation welcome grant requests to support innovative program initiatives, short-term projects, capital requests, start-up or operating needs.
  • Capacity Building: Grant resources are available to invest in efforts to enhance the management and governance performance of charitable organizations that are addressing the themes of social equity in St. Cloud.
  • Advocacy: While the Foundation is prohibited from lobbying, the Foundation will consider funding permissible advocacy activities such as public education campaigns on a given topic, nonpartisan analysis study or research, training for nonprofits on how to engage effectively in advocacy, educating public policy makers on various issues, and nonpartisan election-related activity.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Preparing individuals from marginalized and at-risk populations to serve and lead the community;
  • Building healthy relationships among various societal groups; and
  • Triggering bold, collaborative community projects that advance social equity.

The Foundation welcomes collaboration with other grantmakers and favors grantseekers with multiple sources of support.

Estimated Size of Grant:

Historically, the Foundation generally does not consider requests for less than $10,000.

Term of Contract:

While Foundation grants usually provide one year of support, there are circumstances where it might entertain a multi-year project or proposal.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The Morgan Family Foundation awards the vast majority of its grants to charitable, nonprofit organizations that are recognized by the IRS as 501(c)(3) public charities. Occasionally grants may be made to units of government. If a charitable project is being undertaken by an entity that does not have 501(c)(3) status, please contact the Foundation for eligibility.

Generally, the Foundation will not:
- Make grants to individuals or for the benefit of pre-selected individuals
- Provide funds to lobby legislation or influence public elections
- Support animal rights or animal welfare causes
- Promote any particular religious doctrine
- Serve as replacement funding for public programs
