Supporters and Contributors

In May, MCEE recognizes The Minneapolis Foundation and their 612 Youth Engagement Project for their support of the College Dollars & Sense Program.

The 612 Youth Engagement Project is a grant program that supports summer camps and activities for underserved Minneapolis youth. Grant proposals are reviewed and approved - or not - by high school students in the Minneapolis Youth Congress. We are grateful to have the support of The Minneapolis Foundation and the 612 Youth Engagement Project for the College Dollars & Sense: Personal Finance for Life After High School program, and for their commitment to reaching students traditionally underrepresented in higher education.
