How We Operate

Sugarloaf is a private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. We rely on membership, donations and grants for our funding. A board of directors, whose members are from the North Shore, Duluth and greater Minnesota, manages us. Many are year round or seasonal residents on the North Shore.
