Program Descriptions and Guidelines


The Pohlad Family Foundation recently completed its new strategic planning process. While the Foundation team is excited to share and launch its new focus in the coming months, we’re aware of the impact our new direction will have on currently funded programs and grantees.  In recognition of the Foundation’s relationships with current grantees, we will share information about our new strategic direction with them prior to our public launch in the coming months.  

Historically funded programs including Youth Advancement and the Summer Camp Scholarship will end in 2018.  Current Pohlad Scholars commitments will be honored through college graduation.  Through its new strategic focus, the Foundation will continue to collaborate with organizations serving the North Minneapolis community. 

The Foundation is not accepting unsolicited grant applications at this time.  Please refer to our site in the coming months to learn more about its new strategic focus and grant opportunities.

Feel free to contact Courtney Kiernat, Senior Program Director, with any questions at 612-661-3803 or
