Community

A commitment to community

We have a long standing commitment to positively impact the quality of life in the communities in which we work and live.

Through the Pohlad Family Foundation, the Minnesota Twins Community Fund, and each of our operating companies, we support the organizations and initiatives that improve the quality of life in our communities.

Trout Brook

In the spring of 2014, over 100 employees rolled up their sleeves at the new Trout Brook Nature Sanctuary just north of downtown St. Paul, Minn. for a volunteer habitat restoration event. Together, they transformed a neglected former railroad site into a nature sanctuary complete with prairie, savanna, maple-basswood forest and a storm water management system filtration pond.

Through the Pohlad Family Foundation, which distributed more than $12 million in 2014; the Minnesota Twins Community Fund, which supports the healthy development of children and families through an association with baseball, softball and the Minnesota Twins; and each of our operating companies, which provide time, talent and resources to nonprofit organizations where their employees live and work—we support the organizations and initiatives that address important issues and needs in our communities.
