Larry and Nancy Bentson
"Out of genuine gratitude and a sincere desire to share out blessings, philanthropy has been a core value for us throughout our lives."
In 1956, the Bentson family established the Bentson Foundation to support a diverse array of charitable causes in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Throughout their lives, Larry and Nancy Bentson were known for their compassion, quiet generosity and a strong commitment to their faith. Larry and Nancy created a lasting legacy of philanthropy that continues to this day through the work of the Bentson Foundation.
Our areas of giving include:
- Higher Education
- Public Health
- Arts & Humanities
Our primary geographic focus is Minneapolis/St. Paul Minnesota and Santa Barbara, California.
The Bentson Foundation does not consider unsolicited requests for support.
