The Knute Nelson Foundation was the recipient of a wonderful $2,150 gift from the Amy Christopherson State Farm Agency. Amy started a program called Quotes for Good, where she donates $10 to a local nonprofit for every quote her office generates. During the months of March and April, Amy's office generated an astonishing 215 quotes. 

The Knute Nelson Foundation is thrilled by the generosity of Amy's agency! As you can imagine, this gift is particularly helpful right now. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our needs are greater than ever to keep those we serve safe and engaged as best we're able.

The beginning of May marks a Minnesota state-wide campaign called Give at Home MN, a week-long celebration of giving that runs from May 1-8. The folks at GiveMN have created this week-long giving event in response to the challenges Minnesota nonprofits face due to COVID-19. The Knute Nelson Foundation is grateful and honored to be a recipient of charitable dollars during this giving week. 

Yinvite you to join in this generosity and support the Knute Nelson Foundation by making a gift

Fun fact: your donation during Give at Home MN week (May 1-8) may help the Knute Nelson Foundation receive an additional donation! Every gift made on the Knute Nelson Foundation's GiveMN page from May 1-8 will be entered into random drawings for bonus grants of $250 to $2,500. GiveMN will be awarding $68,000 worth of bonus grants during this week!
