Community Impact

Lasting, positive change with and for the Saint Paul community

Wilder is committed to creating lasting, positive change with and for the Saint Paul community. We know we can’t do this work alone, so we unite with partners to eliminate barriers, transform systems and strengthen communities from within. We seek ways to multiply our impact and share our insights so others can benefit from our work.
