The NORTHSIDE IMPACT FUND, a Minneapolis Foundation Donor Advised Fund, was established to support vetted and verified non-profit organizations on the frontlines working to stabilize underserved communities.  


These communities face a healthcare crisis, civil unrest, natural disasters, economic depression, decades of inequality and underdevelopment, and an uncertain future.

The NORTHSIDE IMPACT FUND started with a seed donation by Alpine Esports and a generous donation by the Thielen Foundation to help North Minneapolis after the murder of George Floyd. The fund has directly helped more than 10,000 families since May 2020 and has expanded nationally.

Funds passed through the Minneapolis Foundation as a Donor Advised Fund, NORTHSIDE IMPACT FUND, and directly supported organizations in our network.  The Urban Impact makes no money from fundraising, has no operations, and is 100% managed by volunteers.

The fund is closed.  Please DM us and we will connect you directly to the causes and groups we support.

We are a part of the Global GVBACK Tuesday Network started in 2017 to give back one-hour of time to service to local communities.
