Local and focused philanthropy
The Saint Paul Foundation supports local, volunteer-led foundations through the Community Affiliates program. Every year, these affiliate foundations grant thousands of dollars into local communities. Community members drive the grantmaking process of each affiliate and community fundraising and outreach efforts help build permanent funds to invest in their region for years to come.
Our Community Affiliates
The Saint Paul Foundation believes supporting local leaders with the tools and resources they need to fulfill their community vision is another way to build a strong community. Volunteers, board members and donors are best placed to understand and meet the pressing needs of their neighbors. The Saint Paul Foundation is proud to provide supportive services to three local Community Affiliates:
- Saint Anthony Park Community Foundation
- Shoreview Community Foundation
- Vadnais Heights Area Community Foundation
