Mission Statement:
The Beim Foundation, a multi-generational family foundation, honors the past while embracing the future. Founded over 70 years ago by Nels Christian Beim, an immigrant from Norway, the Foundation has both a Minnesota-focused granting component and a program that serves other regions of interest to the Directors. The Foundation’s philanthropic priorities favor small, community-based, and developing organizations. Grants are made in the areas of arts, environment, human services and education.

We demonstrate leadership by:
  • Investing in innovation
  • Providing opportunities for those in need
  • Creating healthy and sustainable communities through compassionate action
  • Fostering personal and spiritual growth through giving
