Creating a charitable giving plan is a wonderful way to make a significant impact for generations to come.

Including charitable giving in your will or trust is probably easier than you think. Partnering with the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation simplifies the process and ensures the causes you care about continue to thrive. You’ll receive the benefits of being a donor today while knowing you’ll have an impact far into the future.

‘The Embodiment of Generosity in our Community’

Scott and Kathy H. felt the power of libraries throughout their entire careers. Both worked for the Saint Paul Public Library, Scott as a building engineer and Kathy as a librarian and branch manager.

Scott and Kathy made a charitable giving plan and decided to donate their house in their will to a charitable fund with the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation. This generous gift will benefit The Friends of The Saint Paul Public Library and continue to invest in their local libraries' children’s programming for generations.

“The beauty of this gift is that it goes into perpetuity. It will never expire,” says Liz with The Friends.
