I can’t think of a better way to celebrate our 100th birthday than by inviting everyone who lives here to enjoy some of the assets that make Minneapolis great—and to share their wishes for the future of our community.

Sandra Vargas, President & CEO of The Minneapolis Foundation

Equity. Jobs. Affordable housing for all. Better funded/resourced city schools. Rebuilding the post tornado Northside with the same vigor as the previous rebuilding of post tornado south Minneapolis. The use of funds for that ridiculous task force for gangs to be used for idk…..youth work, jobs for young people, art in schools and/or a rape task force on these college campuses. Because that’s a muuuucchhh bigger problem, in general.

A Wish from the Foundation

We envision a city where jobs pay a living wage and parents can shape their family’s future.
Where children have caring adults outside of their family and gain the skills needed for a productive, rewarding life.
Where people enjoy the security of an affordable home and the opportunity to pass something on to the next generation.

Imagine a place without inequities. We call this OneMinneapolis.
This is our wish for the future of our community.
