Facing Race: Our commitment to racial equity

A woman listening while three women in the background are writing

Today’s racism is hard for many of us to see. It runs deep, intricately woven into the backbone of our everyday lives. It affects our children in school, colleagues at work and the way we interact — or don’t — with our neighbors.

Minnesota Community Foundation believes that facing the issue of race remains one of our most pressing issues and significant opportunities to make a difference.

We are renewing our commitment to fostering racial equity. The board and staff of The Saint Paul Foundation and Minnesota Community Foundation, affiliates of Minnesota Philanthropy Partners, have adopted a new racial equity framework to guide us forward in this work.

This fresh approach is an opportunity to deepen our commitment and infuse racial equity in all of our roles as community foundations.

We look forward to continuing this journey and promoting racial equity in key roles we play.
