Community-led grantmaking is the core of the Diversity Endowment Funds. Hosted by the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundations, the Diversity Endowment Funds are driven by racial and cultural communities in the East Metro for the benefit of these same communities. Volunteer committees recommend grants for projects and programs, making these funds highly reflective and responsive to community-identified needs and solutions.
