I want to thank everyone who has made the Shoreview Community Foundation so successful in a relatively short time. Because of you, the Shoreview Community Foundation has made 22 grants to 15 different organizations serving Shoreview and surrounding communities. These grants, totaling $49,760 have supported theater groups, inclusive school playgrounds, food shelves, senior living facilities, historical preservation, social service organizations and the Ramsey County Library. That is amazing considering the foundation was started in 2008. Thank you to the over 400 individuals and corporations who have made that possible.

Our mission is to maintain, enhance and enrich the quality of life in Shoreview by connecting the generosity of people with the evolving needs of the community. This year the board wants to celebrate its10th anniversary by reaching the goal set by the founders of having over $1,000,000 in our endowment fund. Now we are hoping to expand our base and meet our goal by initiating a vigorous fund raising campaign. Donations from $50.00 to $120,000 have given us great momentum. To meet our $1,000,000 goal the foundations needs to raise an additional $350,000 by the end of the year.

This is where we need you. We need to “get the word out” about the Shoreview Community Foundation, really your Foundation, and its work. We all enjoy the benefits of living in a wonderful community with many assets provided by non-profit organizations. We need to pay it forward for your children and grandchildren. Will you consider a donation, and ask your friends and neighbors to join with you? Create your legacy and build your foundation together so our local non-profit organizations have a source of funding as they need it. Thank you for being part this very important work.
