Grantmaking Officer, Native Nations focus (BF)

The Bush Foundation is a private foundation based in St. Paul, Minnesota. The Foundation was established in 1953 by 3M executive Archibald Bush and his wife, Edyth. Today, we invest in great ideas and the people who power them in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and the 23 Native nations that share the geography. We work to inspire and support creative problem solving – within and across sectors – to make our region better for everyone. Learn more about us at, including our work in Native nations and our commitment to addressing racial wealth gaps.
