Grantmaking information session resources

The grant team from the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation and our partner foundations – F. R. Bigelow Foundation and Mardag Foundation – held two virtual information sessions in June about the second cycle of grantmaking for 2021. The session recordings, the presentation shared during those sessions, and answers to questions we received during the sessions are available on the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation website.
