The awards are based on scholastic achievement, leadership, and an ability to contribute to cooperatives in the future. The Foundation Vision Statement declares that, “The Foundation will sponsor qualified individuals and organizations to further the goals of cooperatives and their members.” The Foundation directors voted to create the new scholarship to work toward its vision of educating others about the role of cooperatives in our communities.

The sponsor organization for the Foundation is MAC, which is a trade association that serves Minnesota’s cooperatives owned by more than 3.4 million residents by providing lobbying, education, public relations, and technical services for a wide variety of cooperatives including farm supply, health, dairy marketing, consumer, credit, livestock marketing, telephone, electric, housing, insurance, cable communications, worker-owned cooperatives, and more. MAC is headquartered in St. Paul, Minnesota.
