Supporting the Minneapolis Community in Times of Strife

Guided by the values of compassion and respect, The James R. Thorpe Foundation has been dedicated to making the greater Minneapolis area better for all of its citizens for nearly fifty years. The tragic unfolding of George Floyd’s death, combined with the  COVID-19 outbreak, has brought an unprecedented impact to the Minneapolis area which we strongly feel compelled to help address. The Foundation will support broad community responses as well as targeted support for our long-term partners most directly impacted by these events. Ultimately, we join the entire community in recognizing the need for healing and support that will allow our community to not just survive but thrive.

The James R. Thorpe Foundation is a family foundation based on values of respect and compassion, and is dedicated to making the greater Minneapolis area better for all of its citizens.
