Partnership Council

The Saint Paul Promise Neighborhood is governed by the Partnership Council. The Partnership Council is currently composed of 20 members, from public institutions, nonprofit, private sector, and community. The Partnership Council has been chartered to fulfill the following:
  1. Accountability for strategy, policy/practice and budget
  2. Commit to public institutional and community systems change
  3. Develop resources for the initiative (access to funding and needed relationships, etc.)
  4. Foster neighborhood support
  5. Be champions for the initiative



The Saint Paul Promise Neighborhood Partnership Council selected Ann Mulholland, Vice President of Grants and Programs at Minnesota Philanthropy Partners and Mary K. Boyd, President and CEO of MKB & Associates, Inc., to co-chair the Saint Paul Promise Neighborhood Partnership Council. Both Mulholland and Boyd are committed supporters of Saint Paul, and we are very excited to have them serve in their leadership roles with the initiative.
