Program areas at Saint Paul and Minnesota Foundation

We work with donors, professional and legal advisors, nonprofit organizations and local leaders to identify and support critical needs across the state of Minnesota. We help donors achieve their charitable goals and address critical issues facing communities around the state. Through our grantmaking, we support nonprofits doing great work in six key areas: economic opportunity and security; education and training; excellent quality of life; housing and mobility choices; quality affordable health care; and strong human services and family support.
We support effective grantmaking and provide administrative services for a wide variety of funds and foundations serving Minnesota and the east metro area, including dakota, ramsey and Washington counties.
Through community initiatives - innovative and responsive programs that directly serve people in the community - we are able to support and address timely issues. A snapshot of our current work includes the east metro pulse survey and report. The project included a survey for residents that measured community vitality and quality of life in dakota, ramsey, and Washington counties. The report has been shared with the general public to help inform policy makers, funders and local leaders about the opportunities and challenges facing the east metro region. Visit www.spmcf.org to learn about all of our community initiatives.
The Foundation provides grants to individuals through the community sharing fund and j.c. and l.a. duke employees assistance fund. The community sharing fund provides small grants to help individuals and families weather a temporary setback and keep it from becoming a major crisis. Grants have been used to help maintain transportation to a job, cover rent or pay for childcare. Through a network of social workers, individuals can access the fund when all other forms of emergency assistance have been exhausted. 898 grants were approved from the community sharing fund during 2022. The duke fund provides assistance to 3m employees who have experienced a catastrophic illness or accident. Grants help employees regain self-sufficiency and return to the workplace. Support is designed to help employees through a transition and is not indefinite. 44 grants were approved from the duke fund during 2022.
