About the Bush Foundation

The Bush Foundation invests in great ideas and the people who power them. We support individuals and organizations that think bigger and think differently about what is possible in communities across Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and the 23 Native nations that share the same geographical area.

The Foundation was established in 1953 by 3M executive Archibald Bush and his wife, Edyth.

About the Consensus Council

The Consensus Council mission is to assist citizens and leaders in reaching agreements on difficult issues of public policy.

The Consensus Council was established in 1990 to assist the state in addressing significant challenges.


In 2013, the Bush Foundation selected intermediary organizations to manage Community Innovation Grants programs in Minnesota, South Dakota and North Dakota.

  • Headwaters Foundation
  • South Dakota Community Foundation
  • The Consensus Council, Inc.

50% of the Community Innovation Grants will be directed to projects that address racial and economic disparities. These are defined as proposals that seek to actively reduce structural and/or systemic gaps in access, outcomes, opportunities or treatment based on race/ethnicity or economic standing.

reporting processes
Reporting Processes

Grantees are encouraged to communicate freely with The Consensus Council throughout the life of their grant and a final report (based on a simplified format) will be required within 30 days of the end of the grant’s term.
