Butler Family Charitable Foundation

In 2018, the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation welcomed another supporting organization: The Butler Family Charitable Foundation. Through the generosity of the family of the late Bernie Butler, the fund was created to promote wellness, education, innovation, and creativity in the family's three communities of Manhattan, Minneapolis, and Seattle. The values of the foundation include: investing in the three hometown communities, progressive thinking and practices, sustainable projects, grassroots efforts to make change, inclusivity and diversity, entrepreneurial spirit, creativity and artistic pursuits, and equal access to healthy lifestyles/living.
