About Us

Saint Paul is all about its people. It is a home to innovators, entrepreneurs and leaders. It is a city that values and supports families and - for generations - has welcomed new Americans. It is a place that preserves its heritage and invests in education and culture.

Annie F. Paper was the first donor of The Saint Paul Foundation. A child emigrant from Eastern Europe, she made her life in Saint Paul. Her father was a peddler and established a jewelry store with her brothers.

Established in 1944 with $5,000, the Annie F. Paper Fund has made 31 grants totaling $65,000. Today the Fund is worth more than $65,000.

Paper and other early investors such as Glen and Harold Bend, Grace Flandreau, Ralph Kriesel and Mary Lou Diether established legacy funds that made sure resources were available to meet the community's changing needs.
