- Itasca Area
The vision propelling Blandin Foundation’s work is to be an excellent partner in building healthy rural communities, grounded in strong economies, where benefits and burdens are widely shared.
Trustees and staff value your engagement in this work, and encourage you to access the full range of resources of the Foundation as we all work toward healthy rural communities. Here are some of the specific and special ways we partner with people and leaders in our “home giving area” – Itasca County, plus Blackduck, Hill City, Northome, and Remer.
