Grantmaking Updates in Response to COVID-19

In times of crisis, we recognize that the ways we support our community need to be flexible and responsive.

Through conversations with community members, we are listening, learning and evaluating how we can best support you through the COVID-19 pandemic.

As of March 30, 2020, organizations with a current grant from the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation, F. R. Bigelow Foundation and/or Mardag Foundation may use current grant funds to address challenges that have arisen because of the COVID-19 community crisis.

Additionally, current grant applicants may amend their grant applications to address challenges and urgent needs that have arisen because of the COVID-19 community crisis.

If you are interested in making any changes to your current grant or application, please email your program officer.

We are also reviewing our future grantmaking to ensure that our offerings are flexible and responsive as community needs change.

Thank you for the leadership and support you provide every day across our state. We are grateful for the opportunity to partner and face these new challenges together.
