Our vision

Children experience well-being. They grow up and develop in environments where they are:

  • Supported and nurtured;
  • Safe from abuse and neglect;
  • Resilient in the face of trauma;
  • Successful in school;
  • Thriving in their families and communities.


Our Mission

The mission of the Sauer Family Foundation is to invest in strengthening the well-being of children
so they thrive in their families and communities.


Who We Serve

We fund in the state of Minnesota with priority given to the seven-county metro area. We work in settings that serve children who are at-risk or experiencing abuse or neglect, exposed to toxic stress/trauma, or have challenges developing reading, writing and math skills. This includes schools and early childhood settings, non-profit and research organizations, government agencies, collaborations, and networks.
