The mission of the Sauer Family Foundation is to use our resources to improve the lives of
disadvantaged children and their families in Minnesota.
Education is the pathway out of poverty. Every child deserves a relevant education that captures their interests and propels them into a career.
Brain development begins from day one, and we believe that early childhood development is critical for putting children on the path for a healthy, thriving life.
How do we attend to our most vulnerable children? When children are abused or neglected, we need to attend to the child's well-being and support their family.
The Sauer Family Foundation funds in the areas of Early Childhood Education for children in foster care, homeless families and low income families; K-12 Education for children in low income families; and in Child Welfare, particularly in the areas of prevention and early intervention.
