Program Lead, Community Affiliates
"I have a passion for nonprofit and philanthropic work aimed at creating real and lasting public good, so I am excited to serve an organization that is at the epicenter of so much excellent work happening in our communities."
|Through the community affiliates program, Matthew supports the work and growth of the region’s community funds, which are designed to benefit a specific city, county or community. The Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation collaborates with dozens of these funds across the state of Minnesota. Matthew supports staff members and volunteers across the state by providing technical assistance, resolving issues, processing contributions and expenses, and supporting the growth of community funds to have even greater impact in our communities. Matthew has been providing administrative support to nonprofit organizations for over a decade. He has a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Hawai’i and a master’s of public policy from the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School of Public Affairs. Matthew has been a proud Minnesota resident for 12 years and lives in Roseville with his wife and infant son. An avid lover of music and travel, he spends most of his leisure time exploring the great outdoors or playing the piano, bass guitar or ukulele.|
