Specific and special ways we partner with people and leaders in our “home giving area” – Itasca County, plus Blackduck, Hill City, Northome, and Remer.
Blandin Foundation has proudly made its home in Itasca County (north central Minnesota) for more than 80 years. This region was the “wood basket” of the Grand Rapids-based Blandin Paper Company when it was owned by Foundation founder Charles Blandin in the early 20th Century. We stand with these communities as they design and claim vibrant futures in the 21st Century.
Our commitment is as strong as ever.
