The Minnesota Council on Foundations has produced Giving in Minnesota, 2008 Edition to provide a comprehensive analysis of philanthropy in the state. The 2008 edition features overall giving in 2006, the most recent year for which comprehensive data are available. This summary provides highlights from the full report, which includes information about overall giving by foundations, corporations and individuals in Minnesota, along with detailed grantmaking trends by the Giving in Minnesota sample, which is comprised of 100 of the state's largest grantmakers based on grants paid. Although the foundations and corporate giving programs in the sample represented just 7 percent of grantmakers in the state, they gave 81 percent of all Minnesota grant dollars in 2006. Trend analysis focused on the sample's $815 million given as grants of $2,000 or more.
