The Saint Paul & Minnesota Community Foundations

Better Together

Learn How We Can Help


Minnesota Philanthropy Partners is now called The Saint Paul & Minnesota Community Foundations.

For more than 75 years, The Saint Paul & Minnesota Community Foundations have remained committed to strengthening our state and ensuring that Minnesota is a place where everyone can thrive. We consistently work to make our community a stronger, more equitable place.

Previously, we used the name Minnesota Philanthropy Partners (or MN Partners) to communicate how we, as four individual foundations, are a part of a larger network. That network includes The Saint Paul Foundation, Minnesota Community Foundation, F. R. Bigelow Foundation and Mardag Foundation.
