The mission of the Sundance Family Foundation is to support youth development and strengthen family stability.



The Sundance Family Foundation makes grants to projects in 501(c)(3) organizations that support  youth development and strengthen family stability, as well as projects that encourage Youth Social Entrepreneurship. Globally, the Foundation has made grants to programs within its guidelines in Latin America, Africa and Russia. Locally, the Foundation focuses giving on organizations whose programming benefits the residents of the following Minnesota and Wisconsin counties: Hennepin, Ramsey, Washington, Chisago, Polk and St. Croix. The grant deadline was July 7, 2015. The grant deadline for 2016 has not been determined, but will probably be about the same time.

The Sundance Family Foundation is committed to cultivating the field of Youth Social Entrepreneurial ventures that are helping youth, particularly youth from under-resourced communities find their potential and vision, and then find ways that they can advance into careers and/or businesses that benefit their communities.

No grants are being accepted for International Projects.
