Happy Holidays.

For 25 years, girls in Minnesota have turned to the Ann Bancroft Foundation to invest in their dreams and nurture their confidence, pride, and self-advocacy. We are immensely humbled by Maslon’s generosity, which allows us to provide grants to 25 girls as they dream big and fulfill their potential.

Girls like Maya, whose dream was to capture the stories of her Vietnamese family members who fled Vietnam to come as immigrants to Minnesota. She longed for a camera to capture the faces of the elders she interviewed. Or Bridget’s dream to promote and teach other youth how to grow a backyard vegetable garden, leading to more youth-led gardens throughout her northern Minnesota community of Bemidji.

Maslon’s generosity in celebration of our 25th anniversary allows us to continue our work improving outcomes and inspiring K–12 girls in our state.

We hope you enjoyed the video and stories above, and we invite you to stay involved and walk alongside us as we work to inspire generosity, invest in girls’ dreams, and advocate for gender equity.

In gratitude, joy, and solidarity,



Ann Bancroft
