Special Guest Speaker :
Susie Brown is regularly engaged with our region’s change makers and vision drivers. Since April 2019 she has been leading the Minnesota Council on Foundations (MCF), an organization committed to equity and advancing community prosperity.
Deepening philanthropic connections, amplifying voices and increasing the effectiveness of Foundations is the goal of today's MCF.
Susie has spent her career in the nonprofit sector. She holds a BA in international affairs from Lewis and Clark College and a Master of Public Administration from the University of Vermont. She has been a Policy Fellow at the Humphrey Institute and teaches nonprofit management at Hamline University.
Susie has lifelong ties to the Valley! She lives in St. Paul with her husband and daughter, but when not working, you can often find her in the St. Croix Valley where she grew up. A Stillwater Pony, former scooper at Nelson's Ice Cream and past (and current) skier at Afton Alps - the Valley is in her blood.

Why A Zoom Event??
The St. Croix Valley Foundation board and staff has, for the past several summers, looked forward to gathering with our friends to reconnect, share impact stories made possible by donor generosity, and enjoy an engaging, entertaining presentation.
Events of the past weeks and months make it clear this is not a "business as usual"sort of summer. And yet meeting challenges, showing compassion and being responsive to our communities' needs is indeed "business as usual" for every donor, nonprofit and friend of the St. Croix Valley Foundation.
The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic challenges each of us to find creative ways to stay connected while staying apart. We hope to connect with you on July 16th!
Marking 25 Years and Looking Forward!?
If you've come to past gatherings at the Historic Stillwater Courthouse, this event will have a similar energy and optimism! The St. Croix Valley Foundation is 25 Years Strong in 2020! And it's that very legacy, that strength and position within our communities that has allowed SCVF to work with community partners to put over $525,000 into the hands of front line nonprofits meeting COVID-related needs in the Valley.
This is what community foundation's do best - plan for the unknowable, invest for future needs that don't even have a name yet. All to keep the communities we love strong and vibrant today and long into the future.
Please join us! We have so much Good to share!
