Blandin Foundation helps rural Minnesota leaders develop and enhance the skills, knowledge and relationships they need to build and sustain healthy communities.
Healthy community is a place to live where all people can meet their economic, social, physical, cultural and spiritual needs, work together for the common good, and participate in creating their future.
Since 1985, our leadership programs have trained over 7,000 leaders who reside in approximately 600 rural Minnesota communities.
We have been engaged with partners across the state in working with rural communities and leaders from all sectors to not only carry out training, but evolve our programs to reflect current rural developments and feedback from our participants.
