New report highlights housing as single best investment for Minnesota's economy

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.

While we at the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundations are always proud to support nonprofits working to provide affordable housing and human services through our grantmaking, we’re also grateful when we can play a role as a convener, bringing together groups and individuals across all sectors to drive community response to urgent needs and opportunities, as the Community Impact Framework that guides our actions calls on us to do.

In 2017, we commissioned a report by the Citizens League – Gathering Community Input on a Possible Minimum Wage Increase in St. Paul. What we appreciate about the Citizens League is that the organization brings together people with a variety of perspectives and points of view in a safe place where they can have a real conversation. When trying to solve community issues, positive discourse is necessary.
