The Amazing Power of a Penny

Since 1989, the NAIOP Minnesota's Penny Per Square Foot (PPSF) Fund has unified commercial property owners/managers and their business tenants to fund initiatives to improve Minnesota’s business climate.

Voluntary contributions to the PPSF Fund by many committed member companies have enabled NAIOP to mount vigorous, aggressive, and strategic campaigns to defend commercial/industrial property taxpayers over the years.
