Sauer Family Foundation Announces Increased Assets for a New Level of Impact

Wednesday, June 30, 2021

This month, the Sauer family announced that they had sold their company, with a portion of the proceeds going to the foundation. The foundation's assets will increase from $28 million to $100 million,  and that amount is to be invested in the community over the next 10 years.

African American and Native American children are disproportionately taken from their families and languish in the child welfare system longer than other children. The Sauer Family Foundation remains committed to trying to help solve this problem in child welfare. It is also committed to helping children develop adaptive and flexible coping skills for processing stress and learning self-regulation for better life outcomes. In education, it aims for every child learning to read; especially children with specific learning disabilities.  Furthermore, the foundation hopes to diversify the workforce in all three of its funding areas because greater representation is an effective way to create more equitable outcomes for children and families in Minnesota.
