Lifting Up Lake Street

This past year was among the most challenging in living memory for Minneapolis. Our neighbors, tenants, business partners and broader community were put under immense strain when faced with escalating public health and economic crises. The weeks following Memorial Day 2020 brought another wave of confusion and pain for us all to weather.

Lake Street Response

Since its founding in 1984, Wellington Management, Inc. has been a locally-owned and family-run organization, deeply proud of the connections that it has made over the decades with the communities where we own and manage our properties. The tenants in our buildings are more than business contacts; they are our neighbors, our partners, and our friends.

WMI and Urban Homeworks

Wellington Management, Inc. has launched our fall fundraising campaign to support Urban Homeworks, a local non-profit that transforms foreclosed, condemned and vacant properties into quality housing in Minneapolis and Saint Paul neighborhoods. The renovated homes are then made available for rent or purchase by low to moderate-income families.

WMI and Children's HeartLink

We here at the Wellington Management team are thrilled to announce that we've wrapped up our Spring Philanthropy push and have surpassed our goal, raising over $5,000 for Children's HeartLink!

Wellington Management and Children's HeartLink

Wellington Management is proud of its commitment to investing in our community, both locally and globally. This spring we are working with Children’s HeartLink, a Minneapolis-based nonprofit that saves the lives of children born with heart conditions by training local medical teams in underserved parts of the world.


Wellington Management and the Sheridan Story

Wellington Management, Inc.values involvement and investment in the local and global community. This "investment" often goes well beyond real-estate deals.
