About the 3M Open Fund

The 3M Open Fund, based in Minnesota, is a non-profit 501(c)3 foundation created when the tournament was founded by 3M and the PGA TOUR in 2019. The 3M Open serves as the principal fundraiser for the organization’s efforts to support local and regional charitable organizations. The foundation’s mission aligns with 3M’s commitment to improve lives in communities where we live, work and learn. 

3M Open officials announced its 2021 charitable giving efforts will be directed largely toward local nonprofit organizations which are focused on supporting individuals, groups and companies impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.  Additionally, the 3M Open Fund is proud to support those organizations that are committed to bolster racial equity.   

Below are the nonprofits the 3M Open Fund is supporting in 2021:

The 3M Open, in partnership with Greater Twin Cities United Way, presented Jessica Rogers the Social Justice Leadership Award and provided a $7,500 grant to her nonprofit organization, Connections to Independence.

Rogers’ established her organization in 2010 with a mission to provide unique programming and advocacy for foster care youth, ages 14-24, to promote a successful and healthy transition to living independently as they reach adulthood. Rogers also serves as the Executive Director. 

Through Rogers’ leadership and collaboration with multiple other local nonprofits and foundations, the outcomes of the youth in the program have exceeded national outcomes. This has gained attention from other states who are looking to Connections to Independence for insight on how to adapt the program in their own communities.
