At Constellation, we believe that the best poverty-fighting solutions are those closest to the challenge, and work to identify and support the people and community partners having the biggest impacts. Through our collaborative grantmaking process, Constellation works to understand the poverty-fighting outcomes of prospective grantees, and then partner with organizations to increase effectiveness.

Working with applicants as trusted partners, Constellation staff will develop an impact assessment report and share this with applicants whether a grant is received or not. The report will assist organizations in better communicating their impact and defining any areas where improvements are possible.


Constellation supports organizations operating to alleviate poverty in the seven-county Twin Cities metropolitan area. Organizations must yield demonstrable results for those living below 185% of the federal poverty line in our community.
