Charities

The Minnesota Stroke Association (MSA) is the only state-wide nonprofit organization in Minnesota devoted solely to serving the needs of individuals affected by stroke through our mission to raise awareness about stroke and enhance the quality of life for all people coping with its sudden and long-term effects. MSA provides advocacy, education, resources and referral services for the over 97,000 Minnesotans who have had a stroke, their loved ones and the professionals who work with them.

Proof Alliance is a national leader in promoting awareness about the effects of prenatal alcohol exposure and advocacy for individuals and families impacted by fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD).  Since 1998, we have had a dual purpose: providing education on the impact of alcohol use during pregnancy, which can encompass a lifetime of physical, mental and behavioral disabilities, and championing efforts to enable individuals living with an FASD to reach their full potential.
