About this funder:
Note: The Foundation considers letters of inquiry. Letters of inquiry are generally recommended for organizations new to the Foundation or outside the St. Croix Valley. Organizations may choose to submit either a letter of inquiry or a full proposal. Letters of inquiry are reviewed at the Foundation’s next board meeting. If the board determines that the request falls within its guidelines and interests, a full proposal will be requested from the applicant for review at the following board meeting.
The Hugh J. Andersen Foundation’s mission is to give back to our community through focused efforts that foster inclusivity, promote equality, and lead to increased human independence, self-sufficiency and dignity. To fulfill this mission, the Foundation acts as a grantmaker, innovator, and convener.
The Hugh J. Andersen Foundation was incorporated on March 2, 1962. The original board members were Hugh J. and Jane K. Andersen, and Hugh’s sister, Mary Andersen Hulings. They strongly embraced Andersen Family values learned from Fred, Molly, Isabel and Kitty Andersen: giving back to the community, being responsible citizens, and caring for their neighbors. The current board members continue to uphold this commitment, strive to build upon this spirit of philanthropy, and remain strongly supportive of the St. Croix Valley area.
Program and Geographic Focus
The Foundation is particularly interested in asset-based programs created, initiated, supported or staffed by the constituency for whom benefits are sought. This type of effort builds upon and further develops individual and community capacities. These programs or projects are internally motivated and organized, rather than need-based, service-oriented systems brought in and directed by non-constituents.
The Foundation’s primary geographic focus area is the St. Croix Valley: Washington County in Minnesota and Pierce, Polk and St. Croix Counties in Wisconsin. Programs in St. Paul, Minnesota unduplicated in the St. Croix Valley and utilized by St. Croix Valley residents may also be considered.
From time to time the Foundation may consider programs in other parts of the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area and Greater Minnesota. Please contact the Program Director prior to submitting a proposal to determine if the program might be of interest to the Foundation.
Within the primary geographic focus areas, the Foundation is particularly interested in direct service programs:
- Serving children and youth, especially those that provide personal development activities.
- Providing various social support services to the community at large.
- Providing access to health-related services and information.
- Providing educational opportunities and enrichment to the general community.
The Foundation will only consider the following types of programs and organizations if services are provided in the St. Croix Valley – Washington County in Minnesota and Pierce, Polk and St. Croix counties in Wisconsin:
- Special projects or programs in public schools.
- Programs for individuals with developmental or physical disabilities.
- Programs for seniors.
- Public/civic projects and activities
