Foundation Grants

Executive Secretary, MNLA Foundation

 RE: Grant Requests


This notice is to inform you that the MNLA Foundation Board of Trustees has voted to not disburse any grant funding for the 2016-2018 school year.  This decision was not made lightly.  Unfortunately, contributions and investment returns have not risen to the desired levels.  For the best interests of the Foundation, its endowment, and all potential recipients, the Trustees decided that foregoing grants this year was a wise move with the goal of remaining fiscally strong over the long term.  Grant funding will continue to be evaluated on an annual basis moving forward.


The MNLA Foundation hopes that your programs are able to thrive moving forward.
