What you need to know about Bush Prize: Minnesota

By now we hope you’ve heard the exciting news that Headwaters is partnering with the Bush Foundation to select 2023’s Bush Prize: Minnesota winners. 

We will start accepting applications from organizations next week on Tuesday, April 4, 2023, so we want to make sure you have all the information about this opportunity. 

Here’s what you need to know: 

Bush Prize: Minnesota winners will receive a grant of up to 25% of the organization’s last fiscal year expenses, up to $500,000. Grants are general operating funds that provide maximum flexibility, allowing winners to move resources where they are needed most to support their work. 

Bush Prize: Minnesota winners will be highly valued organizations with a track record of solving problems in their communities. Like all Headwaters grantees, their work will build power and advance justice throughout Minnesota, using inclusive, collaborative and resourceful processes to promote racial and economic equity. 

Interested organizations will want to read the full eligibility and criteria guidelines. You’ll also want to register for our upcoming Information Session on April 10th on Zoom. If you can’t make that time, don’t worry – we’ll be recording the session and posting it to our website. The application deadline is Wednesday, April 26, 2023 at 5 p.m. 

If you have questions about grant criteria, focus, and eligibility, connect with Ray Martinez, Program Manager. If your questions are about accessing and navigating our Grant Portal, then reach out to Grants Associate Toni Geurts
