We’re here for you, Mac-Grove.

Volunteer. Donate. Support your Community. 

Donate today to help make the Macalester-Groveland neighborhood a great place for everyone to live, work, learn, and play!

Macalester-Groveland is a dynamic neighborhood with bustling streets, local businesses, parks and playgrounds, faith communities, elementary schools and universities. Here, we enjoy bikeways, walkable streets, alley gardens, native gardens, and Saint Paul’s first neighborhood-wide organics recycling program. Our neighborhood is a vibrant mix of families, seniors, business owners, students, renters, and homeowners.

We are proud of our neighborhood and we want to see it continue to thrive; however, we recognize that there is work to do to better serve ALL members of our community.

In 2020, your donation is doubled with a $2,500 match from MGCC’s Board!

Your contributions in 2020 will help us pursue the following initiatives:

  • Management of the Mac-Grove Organics Recycling Drop-off Site 
  • Exploration and implentation of the “Adopt-a-Stop” Program, a new initiative from MGCC to clear bus stops in Macalester-Groveland of ice and snow in the winter months to make transit more accessible for all community members, especially seniors and persons with disabilities.
  • Increased accessibility to MGCC meetings, programs, and events.
  • Community events with social distancing and other safety measures, including Mac-Grove Fest and Frost Fest. Your donations will help us plan these events and provide fun activities for everyone in the community!

Ways to Give:

Give online at PayPal or send a check made out to MGCC to 320 S. Griggs Street.

Give online at GiveMN.org. Give to the Max Day is November 19th, but donations are welcome anytime throughout the year.

Select MGCC when you shop on AmazonSmile. Designate the Macalester-Groveland Community Council as your charity on AmazonSmile, and Amazon will donate a portion of each order to us, at no cost to you!

IRA charitable rollover. If you are 70 1/2 years or older, you can make a donation directly from your IRA account to MGCC, a 501(c)3 organization. Your IRA administrator will be able to help you make a qualified distribution.

Employer matching! Many companies match charitable donation made by their employees, and some even match contributions from spouses and retirees. The easiest way to find out if your employer will match your donation to MGCC is to ask your human resources representative and request a matching gift form. You can also search for employer matching gift programs here.
