The Ballmer Group – the philanthropic organization of former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and his wife Connie – have committed to a five-year, $10 million grant to NAZ!

“The grant should inspire and challenge all Twin Cities business and civic leaders to lean in and work together in support of NAZ,” General Mills CEO Ken Powell said.

NAZ will use a portion of its campaign investment to launch a 3-year early-learning scholarship fund of $1 million a year for low-income NAZ families.

Become a NAZ Ally

The NAZ Allies are closing the opportunity gap through ongoing monthly donations. Their combined effort is building a stronger future for our entire state.

NAZ and several close supporters unveiled NAZ Allies at Yes! To Success on the Northside, a special rooftop event at the Walker Art Center in July 2016. At that event, NAZ supporters Kate and David Mortenson announced a $10,000 challenge to reach the first 100 NAZ Allies.

We’ve reached that goal, and Tim Manning’s family has given a challenge of $20,000 to reach 250 NAZ Allies in 2017.
