Detailed Description

 

Today’s racism is hard for many of us to see. It runs deep, intricately woven into the backbone of our everyday lives. It affects our children in school, colleagues at work and the way we interact — or don’t — with our neighbors.

Today, we believe that facing the issue of race remains one of our most pressing issues and significant opportunities to make a difference.

We are renewing our commitment to fostering racial equity. The board and staff of The Saint Paul Foundation and Minnesota Community Foundation, Minnesota Philanthropy Partners affiliates, have adopted a new racial equity framework to guide us forward in this work.

This fresh approach is an opportunity to deepen our commitment and infuse racial equity in all of our roles as community foundations.

We look forward to continuing this journey and promoting racial equity in key roles we play.

Site Information
Beam
  • For the commercial sector, we tend to register startup activities (new companies and new commercial projects) that bring diversification and high-impact opportunities to the area.
  • For the non-profit sector, we wish to shine light on all the organizations and services that otherwise labor under relative obscurity.
  • Our hope is that dmcbeam.org will encourage cross-sector collaborations and creative solutions.

While there are a number of registries in the community, dmcbeam.org's  distinct value is to pilot a database with a data structure and categorizations that answer the questions such as: What organizations or projects/programs in our community that have purported relevance with some of the over-arching focuses put forward by initiatives such as DMC, J2G and Health Improvements?

This database could be used as one of the ways to explore the capacities of the community. If you are someone on an exploratory journey to learn about the greater Rochester community. dmcbeam.org could be an interesting first step.

Definitions
The following defines the various project phases:
  1. Available - a product, program or service is in production
