Support our work

The Minneapolis American Indian Center recently underwent a historic renovation and expansion, so we can continue providing vital services to the local Native community into the future. Since it opened in 1975, the center has been a staple of the American Indian Cultural Corridor on East Franklin Avenue.

We’ve made significant progress in our All Roads Capital Campaign, raising $29.5 million so far, and we are asking generous donors like you to help us reach our $32.5 million goal. Every donation helps us maintain essential resources to the urban Native community and move toward a brighter future.

Officially reopen as of May 1, the center features a blend of tradition and newly expanded features, allowing us to offer Native food, art, health programs, youth activities, and social services to the community. The Boys and Girls Club of the Minneapolis American Indian Center has a new space equipped with technology to help foster creativity and exploration. The Gatherings Cafe, which will reopen May 31 with the Two Rivers Gallery, serves accessible, healthy Indigenous cuisine in an expanded space overlooking Franklin Avenue. Additionally, a new artists’ studio provides space for Indigenous artists to create their work. New coworking and meeting spaces are also available for small business and community use.

This renovation has been years in the making and is only possible because of support from people like you. This generosity allows us to continuing serving the community for generations to come.
