Minnesota Bank & Trust Collaborates to Expand Hiawatha Academies

Edina, MN — Minnesota Bank & Trust (MBT) has announced the result of their partnership with the Charter Schools Development Corporation (CSDC) and Nonprofits Assistance Fund (NAF). MBT led the financing project that will enable Hiawatha Academies to build a new public charter school in South Minneapolis. The new school will initially serve high school students before becoming a middle school in the 2018-19 academic year.

This financing package is the third time MBT, CSDC and NAF collaborated for continued improvement in the community. In 2013, financing was made possible for the school’s first elementary school, Morris Park, and the acquisition and renovation of its second elementary school campus, Northrop. “We could not be more pleased with the partnerships we’ve built with Hiawatha, CSDC and NAF,” said Kelly Elkin, Senior Vice President of Nonprofit Services at Minnesota Bank and Trust. “MBT’s role in providing bank qualified tax-exempt financing for Morris Park, Northrop and now Hiawatha Collegiate High School, demonstrates our belief in Hiawatha’s work of educating students.”

“CSDC’s role as nonprofit owner and landlord to Hiawatha Academies at three of its four campuses would not have been possible without the financial support from MBT and NAF,” said Michelle Liberati, Executive Vice President of the Charter Schools Development Corporation. “CSDC’s relationship with Hiawatha has been an incredibly rewarding journey, and we’re impressed with the impact the school has had, and will continue to have, on so many deserving students. Access to lenders like MBT and NAF is critical to the ability of Hiawatha to scale its impact in the South Minneapolis community.”

NAF Executive Director Kate Barr commented: “Our partnership with MBT helps us meet our mission of strengthening community by investing in nonprofits. We’re able to leverage financing from the bank with our expertise working with charter schools to have an important impact on kids and families. This project needed a creative, committed bank to make it work, and the team at MBT was exactly what was needed.”

Hiawatha Academies is an organization dedicated to empowering students of all ages. “We are deeply grateful for the ongoing support we have received from MBT, CSDC, and NAF,” said Sean Elder, Chief Operating Officer of Hiawatha Academies. “At Hiawatha, we believe in the full potential of every scholar and are preparing a pathway for them to graduate from college and serve the common good. Thanks to the collaborative partnership with MBT, CSDC, and NAF, even more scholars will have the opportunity to fulfill that potential. We couldn’t be more thrilled about the strong community partnerships that have made the new school facility possible.”

EDINA, MINN. — Minnesota Bank & Trust is offering new and existing customers an opportunity to support women fighting breast cancer in the area through its new Pink Ribbon Debit Card. Every time a customer uses the card to make a purchase, MBT will make a contribution to Hope Chest for Breast Cancer, based in Wayzata, Minn.


Pink Ribbon Debit Cards are free and available with all MBT personal checking accounts. Customers can help raise funds locally by using the card. Every time the card is swiped, the bank will make a contribution to Hope Chest at no cost to the customer. In the first half of 2014, the Heartland Financial network of banks have raised over $54,000 for breast cancer charities, according to Kate Kelly, President and CEO of Minnesota Bank & Trust.


“This initiative is new for Minnesota Bank & Trust but we are confident it will become a significant and ongoing support to Hope Chest. We will continue to provide funding well into the future for Hope Chest,” Kelly said. “The success of this program is literally in the hands of the customer.”


Hope Chest for Breast Cancer raises critical resources through the sale of upscale furniture, accessories and designer women’s clothing donated by individuals, wholesalers and retail businesses.
