For 135 years, Sheltering Arms has been an Episcopal woman-led organization charged with caring for Minnesota’s children through direct services, grantmaking and advocacy. What began as one woman’s commitment to the well-being of children has evolved into The Sheltering Arms Foundation, a grantmaking organization that supports programs and policies benefiting Minnesota children and families.Learn More
The Sheltering Arms Foundation seeks to advance equitable solutions to close the opportunity gap. We envision a Minnesota that is a vibrant, thriving state where all children have broad and equitable access to high-quality early childhood education and out-of-school time opportunities that support cognitive, physical, social, and emotional well-being and engage families and communities.Learn More
The Sheltering Arms Foundation engages in advocacy for children’s issues as an important addition to our direct service grantmaking. Our advocacy work is focused on early childhood and out-of-school time issues as a strategy to help eliminate the opportunity gap. We do that by working in partnership with nonprofits, other funders, and government agencies using the tools of grantmaking, convening and training.Learn More
