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 Social Entrepreneurship or services for Youth without permanent shelter.

Youth Social Entrepreneurship (YSE) integrates practices of positive youth development with community engagement and social entrepreneurship to enable mutual transformation of economies, neighborhoods, and individuals.

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.

Sundance is also an intermediary, and provides support for the Youth Social Entrepreneurship Program, Wunderkammers.  Sundance is actively building bridges and pipelines between youth-serving nonprofits, trades, manufacturing, industry, community and other college programs, and post-secondary training centers.
