The Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundations support many organizations that serve immigrants and refugees in Minnesota.

June 20 is World Refugee Day, and we invite you to learn about one of these organizations—Green Card Voices—which has given 420 people from more than 120 countries a platform to tell their own stories.

Reclaim is one of the several LGBTQ+ organizations funded by the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundations. Reclaim provides therapy to youth ages 13-25, who are often marginalized because of their gender identity, gender expression and sexual orientation.

Donor Louise Harris considers giving part of her genetic tapestry. For more than 15 years, she has been creating eco-friendly art and donating 100 percent of the sales from her work to charity.

In this video, president and CEO Dr. Eric Jolly explains the Foundations' approach to grantmaking. We ask 3 questions: Who informs the work? Who forms the work? And who benefits from the work?

As part of our commitment to equity, the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundations will be in the Pride parade and hosting a booth at the festival June 22-23. We hope you'll join us!
