Charles K. Blandin Foundation is a private foundation based in Grand Rapids. Created by C.K. Blandin, it is Minnesota’s largest rural-based and rural-focused foundation.
The Foundation has an investment committee that informs the Residuary Trust and advises the Foundation’s Board. The members of the Foundation board and the corporate trustees are identified in the 990-PF.
The Residuary Trust files a separate 990-PF, but salient information about the trust is incorporated into the Foundation’s filing.
The Foundation provides audited financial reports online. Printed copies of the Foundation’s 990 PF are available from the Foundation on request at a nominal cost. The 990 PF of most nonprofits are available on the Internet at GuideStar and can be downloaded in their entirety.
Blandin Foundation brings insights on rural broadband adoption to Congressional hearing.
