Annual Review 2023

Letter From the President

There’s a lot on the horizon.

Charles Blandin’s life, career and philanthropic investments embodied a commitment to resilience, resourcefulness and long-term sustainability, and his success as a leader was intrinsically tied to his ability to look ahead – to the horizon.

Like Mr. Blandin, we have looked ahead toward the horizon of the Grand Rapids area, our home giving area, where we have a perpetual and primary responsibility. Challenges and opportunities we are adapting to close to home build knowledge and approaches to be shared with others across rural Minnesota. We listen, learn and respond as  we collaborate in this work.
