Our Mission

The Sheltering Arms Foundation's mission is to invest in the lives of Minnesota's children and help them reach their full potential.

We fund non-profit organizations and support policies that benefit children and their families who have the least access to resources.


Reaching Out To Minnesota Children For More Than a Century

Since 1883, Sheltering Arms has been embracing and caring for Minnesota children. What began as one Episcopal woman’s commitment to the well-being of children, has evolved into The Sheltering Arms Foundation, a grantmaking organization that supports programs benefiting Minnesota children and families.
