Information to inform and inspire your community work

Great ideas spark great ideas — and good work.

As one of a handful of rural-based, rural-focused private foundations in the country, Blandin Foundation takes to heart its role to raise up rural perspectives.

This work takes many forms: our Rural Pulse survey, reports on broadband adoption and use, convening communities on topics they care about, from early childhood to historical trauma. We love to share what we learn with you, our friends and neighbors.

Our hope is that these insights spark your hope as you design and claim vibrant futures for your communities.
