August 04, 2020 / Urban Ventures

Urban Ventures, a South Minneapolis-based nonprofit, today announced it has received a $100,000 donation from Young Living, a leading essential oils and wellness company. The goal of Urban Ventures is to send every child within the 25-block core area of downtown Minneapolis to college or some form of postsecondary education by 2040.  The organization believes the single greatest mechanism for breaking the cycle of poverty is through education. This generous donation will provide resources to help Minneapolis youth reach high school graduation and beyond, including providing scholarships to college.
