Otto Bremer Foundation grantmaking supports work important to the communities that are homes and neighbors to Bremer banks.

We strive to help build healthy, vibrant communities—places where basic needs are met, mutual regard is prized and opportunities for economic, civic and social participation are within everyone’s reach. We give highest priority to opportunities with potential to move a community forward in meaningful, powerful and broad-based ways.

In 2013 the Foundation provided 734 grants and one program-related investment totaling approximately $38 million.

We hope the information in this section is helpful as you determine whether the Foundation is a good fit for your organization.
