Dec 6, 2021 by Emily Geris
Knute Nelson and the Knute Nelson Foundation have an incredible impact on the communities we serve, thanks to supporters like you.
There are countless members of the Knute Nelson family—staff, the older adults we serve, family members, donors, board members, volunteers, community partners, engaged community members, and many more.
In this season of reflection, gratitude, and generosity, we are so glad to share this video with you that illustrates the impact of your support on Knute Nelson and the Foundation, and the exciting paths we are charting for the future.
“The ability to serve people at Knute Nelson has been great,” says Mark Anderson, President & CEO. “Our organization has grown immensely over the 17 years I have been here, and the way that we serve people has grown in many innovative ways.”
It is also the time of year when we are also so excited to be able to announce the Knute Nelson 2021 Renaissance Award winners—Meg Jones and Roger Blank. Congratulations, Meg and Roger!
“The person who gets the biggest impact from my volunteerism is me,” says Meg. “I have found volunteering very rewarding, giving me purpose and joy.”
“Knute Nelson provides an element to the community that just makes this area a much better place to live,” says Roger.
“On behalf of the Knute Nelson Foundation, thank you,” says Elliot Christensen, Knute Nelson Foundation Board Chair. “Your support makes everything better.”
“We have a culture of philanthropy that is thriving at Knute Nelson, thanks to our supporters who give of their time, talent, and treasure every single day,” says Emily Geris, Knute Nelson Foundation Executive Director. “This is a very special thing to be a part of at Knute Nelson.”
