AGC of Minnesota Foundation
CCC is a collaborative effort of volunteers from the construction industry who joined together to create a systems approach to addressing economic healing, economic development, and supporting wealth-building in communities that have been historically marginalized due to systemic issues. CCC is a force multiplier leveraging resources, knowledge, and experiences of construction industry leaders, professional technical experts, goods, and services providers. We are currently involved in the business recovery and construction rebuild efforts working with communities in Midway /St. Paul and the City of Brooklyn Center.
Donations to CCC are being processed through the AGC of Minnesota Foundation.

GIVING BACK THROUGH PLANNED GIVING
Consider making the AGC of Minnesota Foundation part of your planned giving! By designating the Foundation as a preferred charity in your estate planning, you benefit the entire construction industry in Minnesota through the sponsorship of construction education.
The construction industry is populated by a great many entrepreneurial stories where family-owned businesses have prospered into successful enterprises. Many of those success stories are rooted in personal dedication, sacrifice, education, and opportunity borne of collective activism and industry engagement. Giving back to those who have contributed to our success is too often an afterthought, when what is needed is foresighted planning. A “road map” showing where to go and how to engage.
Thinking about end of life decisions to distribute assets where you prefer is not easy. To give direction for those thoughts and to identify a pathway for giving back to the industry, the AGC of Minnesota Board of Directors has approved a Legacy Giving designation. The Legacy Giving document allows people to designate the AGC of Minnesota Foundation as a beneficiary of various estate assets or other gifts and memorials, clarifying the specifics of where those gifts should be applied.
The construction industry is often described as a big family of family-owned and operated businesses. Thank you for considering AGC of Minnesota's Legacy Giving option to pass your legacy to the next generation of industry leaders!
