Working with legislators and policymakers to help shape Minnesota’s education system is important. But the Partnership and our members do much more to support Minnesota schools, students, and their families. MBP members make more than $300 million a year in charitable contributions in Minnesota – much of that goes to schools and education-related nonprofit organizations. Through the Partnership, members support a number of programs, provide annual awards to public elementary schools that are closing the achievement gap, help bring technology into classrooms, and, when appropriate, offer time and talent for specific projects.
