The Saint Paul Foundation new grant guidelines highlight its continued commitment to the broad East Metro community. Rather than narrowing its grant guidelines to focus only on specific sectors or issues, The Saint Paul Foundation has revised its grant guidelines to better include and reflect the diversity and breadth of services that are critical for creating a vibrant East Metro community.

“Our new grant guidelines reflect the inter-connected nature of our community and philanthropy,” said Scott Jones, board chair of The Saint Paul Foundation. “Today, nonprofits do not typically operate in silos; they operate across sectors, and we have reflected this in our newly defined and broadly inclusive grant areas.”

The grant guidelines will be used for decisions made at the April 2011 meeting. Applications to be considered for the April 2011 grant round should be received before or close to January 1, 2011. The Foundation’s grantmaking remains focused on Ramsey, Dakota and Washington counties.

The Saint Paul Foundation is the community foundation for Saint Paul and surrounding areas. It connects and supports donors, nonprofits and partners to enrich lives and communities through philanthropy.

“We remain unflaggingly committed to the community of Saint Paul and surrounding areas,” said Carleen Rhodes, president and CEO of The Saint Paul Foundation. “With dedication to our local community, we will continue to support the many different causes, issues, and initiatives that help create a vibrant community.”

To help the nonprofit community understand the refinements to its grant guidelines, The Saint Paul Foundation will be hosting a webinar on Monday, November 1, 2010. Information about the webinar, along with details about the new grant guidelines, is available at

Since 1940, The Saint Paul Foundation has granted more than $600 million to nonprofit organizations contributing to the health and vitality of the community.
