More Than 80 Years of Impact
2020 marked the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation’s 80th anniversary. There is little in the Twin Cities that has not been touched by the Foundation, and over the years you — our fundholders — have expanded that reach and granted to organizations in nearly every county in the state.
The gifts of yesterday make us better poised to address new and emerging disparities today, to grow the strengths of our community and to foster a Minnesota to be proud of — one where all people and communities thrive.
