The Citizens League is grateful to its individual, organization, and foundation supporters who fuel our work.

The Citizens League creates spaces in public policy that produce innovative solutions and better outcomes by prioritizing multiple perspectives. When you give to the Citizens League, you transform hope into action.

Learning is action. Participating is action. Working together – even and especially through tension – is action. This is what our work is about.

But we can’t do this alone – we rely on you to help us continue to produce programming that opens doors to public policy. Support Citizens League today and help us advance civic engagement in Minnesota and develop creative, sustainable solutions to complex policy problems.
