Care Providers of Minnesota Foundation

Transforming care and service delivery for seniors and persons with disabilities through education and leadership development.

Inspiring Greater Purpose

Care Providers of Minnesota Foundation was founded in 1978 and is affiliated with Care Providers of Minnesota, a nonprofit long-term care professional association. The future quality of long-term care depends on building the public's awareness of a definite need for more professional services and to identify and support projects that will meet those needs. 


Over the past two decades, the Foundation has fostered the professional growth and leadership development of hundreds of individuals by:

  • supporting their continuing education and growth through our scholarship programs
  • financially supporting research projects that show promising new practices in our profession
  • developing capable and ethical leaders for our profession

We are committed to continuing this great work and hope you will join us with a financial contribution and/or pledge today and in the future.
