Neighbors and Friends Making A Difference

By: Suzanne Yeager

  • Overnight gear for a sixth-grade camping trip to Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center in Finland, MN.

  • Indoor movie screen and drapes for East Side Freedom Library.

  • Ballet classes for under-served youth.

  • Lego lending library for Arlington Hills Library.

  • Cable gun locks for secure gun storage distributed by Moms Demand Action.

  • A community PowWow at American Indian Magnet School.

These are just a few of the 27 projects a neighborhood giving circle has funded since its inception in March 2022. To view AwesomeStPaul’s full list, visit and click on the St. Paul chapter link.

Ten trustees, which is the maximum number allowed for the St. Paul chapter, pool their money each month and award no-strings attached $1,000 grants to individuals and organizations who want to make St. Paul more awesome than it already is.

RHA Member, Su Yeager, dean of the St. Paul chapter, said, “Sometimes all that is needed to turn a creative idea into reality is some seed money to get started. That’s where we come in. We want to fund projects that serve our community through the lenses of the arts, education and social outreach. We love projects that are solving problems and bringing joy to people in St. Paul.”

The application process is very simple.

Please encourage anyone with an idea for a project who needs a $1,000 grant to get started, to visit and click on the St. Paul chapter link and apply.
