Blandin Foundation is all about Minnesotans imagining, leading, and growing healthy, inclusive – vibrant – communities.
It takes courage to do this work. To stand up. To spur change. To make sure our communities work for all who live in them.
Often this leadership goes unseen. To recognize and celebrate acts of leadership that have significantly contributed to the vibrancy of rural Minnesota communities, we’ve created the Courageous Leadership Award.
