THE VIKINGS CHILDREN'S FUND
While there have been many changes with the Vikings since their inception in 1961, one thing has remained constant, the support the organization has given to the community. The Vikings are proud of the dynamic growth and development of our Vikings Children's Fund.
It's mission is to rally the resources of the Vikings, the corporate community and our fans in support of children's health, education and family services throughout the Upper Midwest. Since 1978, over $10 million has been raised with over $5 million being allocated towards research at the University of Minnesota's Department of Pediatrics.
The Vikings Children's Fund success is attributed to the strong dedication of the Vikings Ownership Group, Vikings Fans, Players, Coaches, Alumni, Volunteers, Staff and Corporate Partners.
