Current Grant Opportunities


The Pohlad Family Foundation recently completed its strategic planning process. While the Foundation team is very excited to share and launch its new focus in the coming months, we’re aware of the impact our new direction will have on many currently funded programs and grantees.  In recognition of the Foundation’s relationships with our Summer Camp grantees over the past 20 years, we are providing a year of transitional funding in 2018 to last year’s grantees.  The Summer Camp program will conclude after this year.

A majority of 2017 Summer Camp grantees were invited to complete a brief application by January 26th.  All applicants will be notified of funding decisions the week of February 5, 2018.

Feel free to contact Courtney Kiernat, Senior Program Director, with any questions at 612-661-3803 or  Thank you for serving young people in our community.


Grants Management Portal

The Foundation uses an online grants management system designed to streamline the grant application and reporting process.  Once an employee at a nonprofit organization is assigned a username and password, they can submit applications, track application statuses, file reports and review their grant history online.  The Foundation’s goal is to make the grantmaking process as straightforward and simple as possible.
