The Minnesota Environmental Fund is proud to support Minnesota’s environment in partnership with Minnesota workplaces and leading nonprofit organizations. In 1991, we began offering workplaces the opportunity for their employees to give at work for the good of the environment- near and dear to people in our Land of 10,000 Lakes. We have since grown from six to nineteen nonprofit organizations that, every day of the year, are making a difference for clean water, natural areas and a healthy environment right here in Minnesota.



The Minnesota Environmental Fund engages individuals and workplaces to support leading nonprofit organizations that protect, conserve and restore Minnesota’s environment.
