Northfield Shares, a community foundation centered on philanthropy, volunteerism and collaborative leadership, announced that it has been awarded a three-year grant totaling $150,000 from the Ames Fund of The Minneapolis Foundation. This unrestricted grant, which will provide $50,000 each year for operations starting in November 2019, will help bridge Northfield Shares to sustainability as it builds its long-term assets.
“Northfield Shares feels honored to again be a recipient of the generous commitment to our community by the Ames Fund of The Minneapolis Foundation,” said Mike Krance, executive director of Northfield Shares. “Their continued investment in our organization has already generated short-term benefit for the Northfield area, and it will enable us to continue expanding our impact on the community for years to come.”
Krance, the first full-time staff member of Northfield Shares who will have worked for the organization for two years on February 1, was hired as a result of a three-year, $190,000 cumulative grant from the Ames Fund.
