Why Donate

The New Ulm Area Foundation has been in existence for over 30 years. It is safe, it is secure, and it is an “endowment fund”.

When you make a gift to the New Ulm Area Foundation, your funds are invested with other community funds through the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundations.  The money is managed by a dedicated team of financial experts.  Collectively, these endowment funds work in concert to provide the greatest possible return and impact to our community.

Unlike a one-time gift to a charitable organization, your gift will provide a consistent and predictable flow of income for our grants.  The fund will be in existence forever and the principal will continue to generate earnings for our community.
