Unrestricted Funds

The needs of the community will always be growing and changing. Unrestricted funds provide maximum flexibility to support these needs forever.

At regular intervals, our board revisits the needs of the community and sets priorities to invest in the most strategic opportunities and critical needs. Together, we will make sure that Saint Paul and the East Metro region stay strong and vibrant.
