Giving Back


Every Friday The Foundry Home Goods donates 5% of our total sales to a different small-and-mighty community-nominated cause. 

We've seen firsthand that some of the most important work towards racial equity, environmental justice, and vital outreach to humans in need and/or building beauty happens at the community level. We are hoping that these ongoing smaller sum donations will serve as 1:1 investments directly back into our communities where they can have the biggest impact.

As always, if you don't need anything from us, please consider supporting any of our Giving Friday recipients directly!

Have a worthy cause/business to support/GoFundMe/smaller non-profit to suggest (does not need to be MPLS-based, but we also love supporting local!):
