February News - Celebrating a Billion Dollar Milestone
CELEBRATING A BILLION DOLLAR MILESTONE
We have exciting news to share. Since our inception, our total charitable grants have surpassed the $1 billion mark. We’d like to celebrate this milestone by thanking our donors, partners and community organizations. 

As Minnesota’s largest community foundation, the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundations have more than 75 years of history. Through our community’s continuous partnership and generosity, we have been able to create generations of impact throughout the state.

Today, Caribou Coffee is helping us celebrate this landmark by making a $5,000 donation in recognition of our first $5,000 gift from Annie Paper — to the Community Sharing Fund, which provides emergency funding up to $500 for people facing a financial crisis.  

Celebrate with us by watching and sharing the videos below and learning more about our impact.

Sincerely,
Eric J. Jolly, Ph.D.
President & CEO
Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundations
