Taking care of our community

Community first

For us, giving back is core to our culture. We’re guided by our unwavering commitment to support the members of our community and strive to have a positive impact where we live and work.

The power of together

Never underestimate the power of community. By supporting one another, we keep our community thriving. Ridgedale Center, together with its tenants, contractors, and vendors, employ nearly 3,000 people from our community. The center also provides support to our schools, local municipalities, county, and state through combined payroll, sales, utility and real estate tax contributions annually of nearly $35.7M.

Local love

We’re more than a shopping center to our locals, we are the heartbeat of our hometown. Our local neighborhoods have been, and will continue to be, our focus. Here's what we’re doing to help our community.

  • Hosting Pinewood Derby Fest, a family friendly event in partnership with the Boy Scouts of America
  • Donating toys to Scenic Heights and Groveland Elementary school in partnership with The Children's Playseum
  • Providing restaurant meal donations to Maple Grove Hospital
  • Donating masks and cookies to local Minnetonka Police Department
  • Partnering with The Minnetonka Center for the Arts to promote local artists throughout the property and to provide shoppers with the opportunity to connect with diverse works of art 
  • Partnering with the University of Minnesota Master Gardeners to launch a community garden at the property
