All Roads Capital Campaign

About the campaign

The All Roads Capital Campaign supports the expansion and renovation of the Minneapolis American Indian Center, enabling the center to scale its programs that support for thousands of Native American children, adults, elders, and families. The center’s programs promote the goals of self-determination, dignity, equity, sustainability, and preserving and sharing cultural traditions. More than 10,000 people visit the center each year for programs, shopping, Gatherings Cafe, and events such as powwows, feasts, community forums, health fairs, sporting events, and tribal voting.

The campaign and renovation help meet current needs and growing capacity by increasing the center’s technological capabilities, resources, and spaces. It also supports needed maintenance to the center, including improved energy and electrical efficiency, fixed insulation and roofing, and ensured ADA accessibility. The center has been a staple for the Twin Cities Native American community since 1975, and the renovations make it possible for the building to effectively serve future generations.

Construction wrapped up in spring 2024, and the center reopened to the community in May after being closed for renovations. While the doors are open again, the All Roads Capital Campaign is still ongoing. The Capital Campaign Committee has raised $29.5 million of the $32.5 million goal as of June 2024.
