David Engman, Breakthrough Ministries' President and founder, told KSTP the previous owner donated the building and even covered the closing costs, totaling up to a $500,000 donation. 

"Our job is to serve and to love and so we were pretty excited when we found out," he said. "I don't know how many people have buildings donated to them in downtown Minneapolis but we feel pretty fortunate."

According to the organization's website, the renovation is expected to be done this upcoming summer.
