Headwaters Foundation for Justice Overview
The mission of Headwaters Foundation for Justice is to be a catalyst for social, racial, economic and environmental justice. Through grantmaking and organizational assistance, Headwaters supports grassroots communities addressing the root causes of injustice. Headwaters engages and partners with a committed community of donors and allies who work for justice. Since 1984, Headwaters has led the way in supporting progressive social change. Over $8.5 million has been donated to grassroots groups in Minnesota. Headwaters is more than a philanthropic institution. It is a diverse community partnership of donors and community activists. The people involved with headwaters are community leaders with the commitment and skills needed to build a more just society. Our willingness to fund new and innovative ideas enables us to respond to cutting-edge issues. Headwaters was the first foundation in Minnesota to fund AIDS advocacy and Welfare Rights which were once considered too radical for mainstream foundations. More than just a funder, we also support the progressive community by training and convening the grassroots community to be more powerful and effective in their work for social, racial and economic justice.
