Advocacy for Children
The Sheltering Arms Foundation believes strongly in the importance of advocacy for children in addition to our funding of direct service work. By advocacy, we mean influencing public policy and larger systems affecting children and families and the non-profits that assist them. Some of that work is done through grants to non-profits doing advocacy work. It is also done through partnering with organizations both locally and nationally, working to educate Minnesota state legislators, and by providing training opportunities for our grantees and other non-profits so they can advocate for themselves.
The Sheltering Arms Foundation believes that as a grantmaker, children are the most important resources for the future. We know that no greater investment can be made in our children and that the entire community must be involved in nurturing and developing this resource.
Please help the most vulnerable children of Minnesota receive access to a wide array of choices for a happy and successful future.
