Project Archives

 

Since 1997, The Olseth Family Foundation has been engaged in improving our communities by providing support to charitable organizations within four key pillars: the arts, education, the environment, and the underserved. We carefully select each project based on the organization’s effectiveness, impact, and connection to our charitable mission. While we acknowledge that there is so much more work to be done, we are grateful to have collaborated with many partners whose deep experience in our focus areas has enriched our communities. We invite you to explore our past projects and connect with these charitable organizations.
