Are you a current GIVING WoMN and ready to make your annual contribution?
The GIVING WoMN membership contribution of $1,100 ($1,000 + $100 administrative fee) is due by the end of November for grants to be made the following February. To be eligible to vote in this year’s grant cycle, we are asking that your contribution be paid by November 30 so that we know how much is available for grants, but paying ASAP is appreciated!
Voting for grant recipients and grant amounts will take place in January. We appreciate all of our current members of Giving WoMN and are so pleased with the impact that together we are making in our community. Over time, we have collectively given out over $1,651,000 in grants for our community and it would not be possible without each and every one of our members.
Annual Donation Administration Information
Saint Paul and Minnesota Foundation assists with our administration and grant making. We operate as a community-advised fund of the Saint Paul and Minnesota Foundation. We are always happy to accept larger contributions. Any contributions received in excess of $1,100 will be dedicated 100% to community grants. Please download the form from the link below to make your annual contribution by check, a donor-advised fund, stock donation or credit card.

- If a credit card is used, an additional $50 fee for credit card processing will be added. (All credit card transactions for any purpose are charged fees by the banks and processors of the credit cards. When we make purchases at retailers, they pay those fees so that we as consumers never see them. With our small admin fee paid to Saint Paul and Minnesota Foundation, there is no “fund” to cover these processing fees.) Credit card gifts may also be made by telephone. Contact the Contributions Department of Saint Paul and Minnesota Foundation, at 651-224-5463.
- Your acknowledgment and a tax receipt will be sent to you by mail.
- For company matching: Check your company’s guidelines and process. Request the match to Saint Paul and Minnesota Foundation for GIVING WoMN. Please process your request VERY EARLY if you use this method of contribution. It can take 8 weeks or longer for a company matches to reach us but our grant pool decisions and grants cannot wait!
