Help the Minneapolis Urban League Make a Difference in 2015!

The photo above captures just a snapshot of the the MUL's annual Family Day celebration. In 2014 more than 2,000 people enjoyed the food, fun, and festivities that went on from noon until dusk on an 80-degree day in September! More importantly hundreds of families were connected to community resources that put them on a path to a better future. We wish we could reach more people through events like Family Day.

Our own programs under our Gateway to Opportunity service delivery model help people become first-time homebuyers, enter specialized skills training, prepare for post-secondary education options, explore career pathways and access affordable healthcare. We wish we could equip more people with the training and skills needed to earn a livable wage and realize the dream of homeownership.

On a daily basis an average of 200 people come through our doors seeking service. At least a hundred more come in just to take advantage of our Computer Resource Room for housing and job searches, and to get help with resume preparation. We wish we could keep this room staffed longer to serve more people who need access to the internet.

We hope you will consider a gift to the Minneapolis Urban League in 2015 to help ensure that our programs can meet the needs of all of our constituents. We invite you to learn more about our programs by clicking the links on the Program Menu Bar above.

On behalf of our Board of Directors, staff, and the thousands of people we serve,
Thank You for considering a gift to support our work in 2015!

Scott Gray, MUL President/CEO
