Our Mission

To provide financial assistance to local families with a child facing a life-threatening illness.

The purpose of the Northern Lights Foundation is to provide local children (up to the age of 18) facing a life-threatening illness with an unrestricted grant for their family to use however they need during a very challenging emotional and financial time. As there are many requests for grants, we work to assist as many families as possible who fall under the following qualifying conditions:

  • At the time of referral, the disease or medical condition has become life-threatening
  • Child is up to the age of 18 (application must be made before 19th Birthday)
  • Family lives within 100 miles of the Duluth, Minnesota community

Local grants are given to the following area but are also considered on a case-by-case basis based on the medical facility availability of the child (100-mile radius):
