Your Year-end Giving Questions Answered

Here are some answers to our most frequently asked questions about year-end charitable planning.

What is the Foundation's EIN Number?

The Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The EIN Tax ID for the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation is 41-6031510.

How do I ensure that my favorite nonprofits receive grants from my fund by December 31?

To ensure that your favorite nonprofits receive grants this year, please submit all grant recommendations by December 7 through DonorView. Because of the volume of grants and our processing time, any grant recommendations made after December 7 may not get processed and mailed before the end of the year.

What about donating stock and mutual funds? How do I donate securities into my fund so I receive a 2022 tax receipt?

Many of our fundholders choose to donate appreciated, publicly traded stock or mutual funds. These kinds of gifts may provide an income tax deduction and could help you minimize capital gains tax.

In 2022, we ask all fundholders to initiate mutual fund transfers by December 2 and stock transfers by December 9 in order to ensure that they are received and processed in 2022. While the Foundation sells mutual fund and stock shares as soon as they are received, it may take some time for your gift to transfer to the Foundation. Please contact your Philanthropic Advisor or email us at for transfer instructions.
