Support Minneapolis and Tours Sister Cities on Give to the Max Day!

22 Sep

Help us strengthen ties between Minnesotans and others around the world! 

For more than a quarter century, we have reached across the ocean to engage young and old alike to reinforce the bonds of friendship with Minnesotans and residents of this French city located an hour southwest of Paris.

In May, we celebrated the biggest event in our 26 year history! An extensive exhibit showcasing Minnesota was successfully staged at the Foire de Tours in Tours, France, an event similar to our state fair. A delegation of nearly 100 from the North Star state engaged with approximately 300,000 attendees to share highlights of our history and cultural heritage. We also celebrated the “Year of America” in Tours, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the 1917 United States establishment of a pilot training facility in Tours during World War I, and were honored to attend the opening of a poster exhibit at the Chateau de Tours featuring nearly 50 World War I posters on loan from the Weisman Art Museum in Minneapolis.

Our work is not done as we hope to build on the success of this immense project by continuing to work on strengthening the values that bind us together with others across the world. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization run entirely by volunteers, we rely solely on the donations of individuals like you to help fulfill our mission. Please visit our page on and consider a donation on Give to the Max Day – Thursday, November 16. 

All contributions are 100% tax deductible. Thank you to all of our donors for your ongoing support!
