Mission

The Robina Foundation, a Minnesota-based private grantmaking foundation, seeks to positively impact critical social issues by encouraging innovation and financially supporting transformative projects of its four institutions partners. These partners, selected by the Foundation’s founder, James H. Binger, are: Abbott Northwestern Hospital, Minneapolis, MN; The Council on Foreign Relations, New York, NY; University of Minnesota Law School, Minneapolis, MN; and Yale University, New Haven, CT.

The Robina Foundation exclusively supports the four institutions selected by its founder.

The Foundation’s grantmaking program is proactive and collaborative, driven by a strong commitment to the development of new ideas and models that have the potential to significantly improve both the selected institutions and the larger society in which we live.

As directed by Robina Foundation’s Founder, Robina is a limited-life foundation. The Foundation plans to dissolve effective December 31, 2020.
