At the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundations, we understand that meaningful, effective community partnerships are the cornerstone of the work that we do.
At the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundations, we are constantly looking for new ways to help nonprofits access talents and resources to help strengthen the communities we serve.
That’s why we are thrilled to announce a new partnership with Catchafire, a virtual, skills-based volunteering platform, to provide pro bono professional support for grantees across Minnesota.
At the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundations, it is not our practice to visit solutions upon communities. We believe active members of the community are in the best position to articulate their own priorities and provide actionable solutions to their challenges.
Thank you for your recent statements regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). I applaud your outspoken leadership on the issue and wholeheartedly support your commitment to work with your colleagues to pass legislation to allow Dreamers to remain in the United States.
At the root of a thriving community lies connectedness. However, it’s never been easier to insulate ourselves from others’ experiences and ideas. Technology lets us limit our contact to people who look, act and think like us. We see the results of social and intellectual isolation and the inability to relate and listen with empathy every day.
