Giving+Together: Homelessness

Homelessness is not inevitable and can be solved with housing resources and programs. Join us for a webinar conversation and hear from community experts about who is experiencing homelessness, what factors may contribute to people becoming homeless and pathways to end homelessness.

Insider Briefing: Creative Charitable Planning with Non-Cash Assets: A Case Study Approach

How would you help a client who wants to donate farmland, mineral rights or a vacation home to their favorite nonprofits? Non-cash assets such as real estate, closely held stock and collectibles are estimated to be a $40-$60 trillion market; yet non-cash assets represent less than 2% of all charitable gifts.

Having a thorough understanding of charitable planning techniques is critical when assisting clients with charitable giving and tax planning. Join Bryan Clontz and learn how you can maximize your clients’ deductions through untapped assets such as real estate, privately held C corporations, S corporations, LLCs, limited partnerships and other unique assets.

Giving+Together: Health Equity in the Age of COVID-19

COVID-19 has impacted us all and threatened the lives of older adults. Tragically, 89% of COVID-19 deaths in Minnesota were individuals 65 years or older. The pandemic also shed light on the disparities between the metro and Greater Minnesota, and for older people of color who historically have faced challenges accessing culturally respectful healthcare.

How can we improve health outcomes for under-served individuals, especially those in Greater Minnesota and from communities of color? Hear from three experts about the intersection of age, geography, race and healthcare during the pandemic.

Equity Inside Out

Though the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation has long advocated for equity, the racial reckoning of 2020 lifted these issues to the forefront. If you have not been steeped in this work, it may feel like a new language or foreign territory. Join Eric J. Jolly, Ph.D., president & CEO, and Nadege Souvenir, senior vice president of Operations & Learning, as they have a conversation about equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI).

Attend the webinar and learn a little bit about EDI, from key terminology to personal experiences to resources for more learning. We will also answer some common donor questions and share some of the Foundation's racial equity work.

Giving+Together: Higher Education

Studies show that higher education provides numerous life benefits and offers an intergenerational pathway out of poverty. Yet high-income, white students are more than twice as likely to graduate from college compared to their low-income peers of color. How can we minimize the achievement gap in higher education?

At this webinar, three speakers highlighted programs that provide college preparation and support to low-income, new Americans and BIPOC students. Learn how these initiatives are helping students prepare for and navigate postsecondary experiences, leading to higher retention rates in school and overall academic success.
