Program areas at Saint Paul and Minnesota Foundations

We work with donors, professional and legal advisors, nonprofit organizations and local leaders to identify and support critical needs in The greater Saint Paul area, including dakota, ramsey and Washington counties. 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 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.
