Field-of-Interest Funds

Maybe you care about education. Perhaps your devotion is with the local arts community. Whether you want to support a specific purpose or geographic area, we can help you establish a field of interest fund that addresses your special concerns.

Our board of community members and staff reviews the needs of the community and ensures that resources will be invested wisely over time. Together, we will make sure that Saint Paul stays strong and vibrant forever.


Laura and Anna E.R. Furness Fund. Granddaughters of Governor Alexander Ramsey, Minnesota’s first territorial governor, the Furness sisters were world travelers who kept strong ties to their hometown of Saint Paul. They were active in Saint Paul society and passionate about history, the arts and social work. Both were avid readers, and today their Fund continues to support literacy programs.
