The Saint Paul Festival and Heritage Foundation (SPFHF) is a non-profit membership organization that produces Minnesota’s Iciest and Spiciest festivals – Saint Paul Winter Carnival and Cinco de Mayo West Side Saint Paul. We rely on sponsors, fundraisers, donations, charitable gaming and our members to support our year-round activities. Like every other non-profit organization, (SPFHF) is feeling the effects of the Governor’s state shut down directive, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We have had to postpone not only our annual Cinco de Mayo celebration, but two of our spring fundraising events. Combined with the closing of our four gambling establishments, we are looking at a loss to the Foundation of over $60,000 in revenue this spring.
The SPFHF has had challenges in years past and because of support from our members, sponsors, and volunteers, we overcame them. We have survived 134 years thus far and the members of this Board and our CEO are determined to buckle down to overcome the financial challenges before us. We will continue to fulfill our mission to foster a sense of community pride, belonging and connectedness by producing and promoting community education, programs, festivals, along with other celebrations for the enjoyment of the people of Saint Paul and its surrounding communities and keep the SPFHF viable for decades to come!
As we enter into our 135th year celebrating The Coolest Celebration Earth, your support is needed now more than ever, to help us regain some of our lost income.
