The Minneapolis Foundation Centennial | 5IVE | Integrated Campaign | Minneapolis, MN

One of the first community foundations in the world, The Minneapolis Foundation brings people together to unite behind common goals and spark positive change in their community.

The Challenge

 

Create a year-long integrated campaign to engage the Minneapolis community, raise awareness about the achievements and role of The Minneapolis Foundation and its donors over the past century, and create a platform for the public to envision the future.

The Solution

 

Becoming a successful community foundation and investing $850 million is not a simple story; it takes dedication, passion, vision, and time. We developed a multi-layered campaign based on a simple concept that could speak to all the accomplishments of the foundation and the forces behind them – 100 starts with 1: 1 person, 1 passion, 1 donor, 1 organization, 1 cause, 1 foundation, 1 united community. The campaign connects the past with the present by highlighting the individuals behind the last 100 years and their legacy that has built our community of today. In a town known for its pride and engagement, we launched #Mpls100 and asked everyone to share their 1 wish for the next 100 years. Our fully integrated campaign includes a Centennial website, interactive timeline, futurist conference, and ad campaign with media placement in print, digital, OOH, radio, and social media.

We designed a centennial website to serve as a centralized platform for the year long celebration.

 

To attract engagement we created an interactive timeline for users to explore the rich history of The Foundation. The site was meant to not only look back at the last 100 years but to also look forward and elevate the sense of community. A page dedicated to making a wish for the future was designed to host a wish gallery and integrated social media platform for anyone to make a wish for the future of their community. A Face Forward Futurist Conference page allowed visitors to stay up to date on the conference speakers and also purchase tickets.
