The mission of the Ciresi Walburn Foundation for Children is to serve as a catalyst for creative, innovative, and societal-changing programs and policies to promote education and equitable opportunities for all of Minnesota’s children and youth.
We support efforts to eliminate inequities in the educational system. We’ve funded early learning programs, education policy and advocacy, programs that support educators, high performing K–12 schools, and wrap-around programs focused on children and families in high-needs neighborhoods. We also established a scholarship fund to help African-American males complete their undergraduate degrees and stride forward as tomorrow’s leaders.
We look forward to helping innovative, effective ideas gain traction and build momentum across the educational system.
The Ciresi Walburn Foundation for Children requests proposals from nonprofit organizations and schools for funding for tutoring to support Minnesota students and help them recover from learning loss due to the pandemic and the COVID slide.
Proposals most likely to be selected for funding will:
- Address opportunity and achievement gaps by supporting students from low-income families and/or students of color;
- Support school-based tutoring programming at high-performing schools*;
- * A “high-performing school” in this instance is a school at which at least one historically underserved student subgroup is outperforming state averages for the student population served, as measured by standards-aligned assessments.
- Support tutoring programming with a research-backed track record of success;
- Help achieve additional impact for the tutoring program, including but not limited to scalability and replicability; and,
- Explain how success will be measured and how results will be studied.

- To be eligible for funding, an organization must be tax-exempt or operate under the fiscal sponsorship of a tax-exempt nonprofit.
- The Foundation does not fund individuals, endowments, political organizations, political fundraising, or political lobbying.
