Root River Current, Inc. is funded by individual donations, foundation grants, and sponsorships. These contributions make it possible for Root River Current to acquire and publish stories of significance that expand our understanding of the people, culture, and communities of southeast Minnesota’s greater Root River valley.

To our many contributors—and particularly the SigAvis ShermAnna Foundation without whose major gifts Root River Current might still be just a dream—a hearty THANK YOU for your generosity, support, and encouragement!

Additionally, our coverage of arts and cultural stories is made possible, in part, by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts & cultural heritage fund.

Lanesboro Arts

We also acknowledge Lanesboro Arts for its in-kind support in facilitating Root River Current board meetings, both virtual and in-person.

Thank you all—we couldn’t do it without you!
