In response to reports that Minneapolis and St. Paul public high school athletic programs were massively underfunded, the Twin Cities Dunkers in 2011 created the Twin Cities Dunkers Fund to provide targeted assistance to 14 high schools in the two cities.
Working in conjunction with The Minneapolis Foundation, the Dunker Fund has been able to direct $587,649 to the schools. The money has been used to purchase equipment and uniforms, to improve athletic facilities and enable road trips.
