ArtSage was one of five aging services providers to receive grants from Fourth Generation, the Fourth Generation Fund, a program of The Minneapolis Foundation. The Fourth Generation is a group of emerging philanthropists who have come together to learn the skills of strategic giving and pool their resources to make a much bigger difference in the community than they could alone.

Every year, they vote to choose an issue, research it together, donate and fundraise to support it, then make grants to local nonprofits. This year, the group chose to focus on aging services in Minnesota.
