Mesabi Tribune: Northland Foundation announces more than $1 million in grants
11 Aug 2023
From April through June, the Northland Foundation awarded $1,011,000 in quarterly grants and another $27,500 in Maada’ookiing grants to benefit the people and communities within its geographic service area, according to a NF news release.
Two large, Systems Change Grants totaling $300,000 were awarded to initiatives that target the root causes of social issues. Beyond providing direct services, grantees are seeking to shift policies, mindsets, and power dynamics that have allowed issues to exist and persist, or to modify how services are delivered leading to better outcomes for populations being served. Systems Change grantees are working to promote fairness within the procedures, processes, and distribution of resources by institutions or systems.
