We have impact in these ways:
- We help people make a difference on the issues and places that matter most to them. By providing charitable advice and services, we help you achieve your charitable giving goals.
- We use the assets entrusted to us to make extraordinary impact. Through the years, generous donors have contributed to The Saint Paul Foundation to provide leadership and support to the community. We have helped them make extraordinary impact, and we can help you do the same. Our approach is a two-pronged strategy of community initiatives and responsive grantmaking.
Community initiatives enable us to be innovative and take action on critical issues facing our communities, from strengthening communities through the arts to helping individuals overcome a short-term financial setback to creating math-rich classrooms that help more children succeed. Learn more
