Insider Briefing: What is a Community Foundation?

You have likely heard of a community foundation — but what exactly do they do, or how do they differ from other foundations or nonprofit organizations? Community foundations play a vital role in the community, and they can be a tremendous asset for donors and professional advisors as well!

Join this virtual conversation and hear from three panelists as they explore how the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation supports community. Learn more about the Foundation’s unique work, including how we work with professional advisors and donors, and services we provide nonprofits.

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.

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.
