Partner With PPNA
PPNA recognizes and greatly values the numerous neighbors, coalitions, groups, and organizations working in the community. Whether folks are creating space, organizing a program, executing an event, or founding a new community garden, these efforts bring vitality and richness to the neighborhood.
With the emergence of the Partnership Engagement Fund through the City of Minneapolis the association has seen an increase in the number of requests it receives for partnerships of varying kinds. In an effort to be of assistance to those inquiring, please note some of the following ways we approach partnerships:
To partner with PPNA on a grant, we give preference to groups that have an existing fiscal agent or have their own 501(c)(3) status.
Your program, event or project must be accessible to members of PPNA (folks who live, work, or own property in Powderhorn Park Neighborhood).
