Sundance Family Foundation is advancing a multi-faceted system of youth workforce development targeting young adults (age 18-24+).

The Sundance Family Foundation will close December 2023. The Board of Directors has invited certain grantees to apply to the foundation for resources to complete their work.  This selection is based on the recent Interim Reports.

The 2023 grants will allow those programs to complete creating successful career pathways for the youth and young adults that they serve.

The Board of Directors, Advisors, and Sundance Family Foundation staff believe that our shared commitment to creating equitable youth-specific career pathways will continue to brighten the futures of our youth and their families in the Twin Cities and beyond. 



Do not submit an application for 2023, unless advised.
