A Dream of Realized Potential

Our two foundations are committed to having a significant, measurable impact on institutions and organizations working in our primary areas of interest: health, knowledge, justice, home, and expression.

Robins Kaplan Private Foundation

A nonprofit organization is a group of people coming together for the greater good. Nonprofit groups make positive contributions to public health, the arts, education, and civic justice. We at Robins Kaplan LLP see the impact nonprofits make every day in their communities, and we offer guidance and financial assistance to dozens of nonprofits across the country.

We share our talents with a diverse network of nonprofits by serving as members of boards of directors, executive boards, boards of governors, advisory boards, boards of visitors, boards of trustees, personnel boards, and boards of overseers.  

To apply for support, please submit a proposal outlining your organization's request to:

Foundation for Children

In 1998, our firm created the Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi Foundation for Children which continues to provide support to enhance educational and other opportunities for children in Minnesota

The Foundation for Children was founded by the firm to serve as a catalyst for creative, innovative and systems-changing programs, and to achieve a long-term impact in promoting education and equal opportunities for all Minnesotans.

From schools with the proven drive to educate low-income children to neighborhood-based education initiatives that provide families with 360-degree support, we’re proud to support organizations that help children on the path to college, careers, and lives that will one day guide our society to greater things.

Minnesota’s future depends on the work we do today to close the opportunity gaps that divide our community. We seek to give our kids more than a chance.
