We’re here for you, Mac-Grove.

Volunteer. Donate. Support your Community. 

Donate today to help make the Macalester-Groveland neighborhood a great place for everyone to live, work, learn, and play!

Macalester-Groveland is a dynamic neighborhood with bustling streets, local businesses, parks and playgrounds, faith communities, elementary schools and universities. Here, we enjoy bikeways, walkable streets, alley gardens, native gardens, and Saint Paul’s first neighborhood-wide organics recycling program. Our neighborhood is a vibrant mix of families, seniors, business owners, students, renters, and homeowners.

We are proud of our neighborhood and we want to see it continue to thrive; however, we recognize that there is work to do to better serve ALL members of our community. 

In 2021, the Macalester-Groveland Community Council (MGCC) continued to work towards representing all voices of the community:

  • MGCC Board and Committees have held over 70 public meetings throughout 2021 so far.
  • This year, MGCC has had the opportunity to bring back many programs and events that were cancelled in 2020. Some of which included a spring community cleanup, the neighborhood garage sales, and the highest number of winning Alley Garden Awards at 1007 residents. We were also able to reunite as a community at Mac-Grove Fest in September! It was wonderful getting to reconnect with our neighbors and we look forward to more in-person events.
  • MGCC partnered with community members to continue the antiracism work from 2020 with Antiracism Learning and Action Sessions. We are excited to continue this work in 2022!
  • We welcomed 5 community members to our Board of Directors in 2021. In April 2022, elections will be held for 8 residential board representative seats on the Board of Directors. 
  • MGCC reinvigorated its Block Club Ambassador program in partnership with Union Park District Council, Macalester College, and the University of St. Thomas, hosting 3 meetings with community members interested in starting or expanding a club on their block.
  • We hosted an informational panel on Rent Stabilization in partnership with 4 other district councils in preparation for the November 2nd elections. Over 100 community members attended and many more watched the recording on our website!

We depend on your involvement and financial support to continue this important work! We invite you to increase your involvement in your neighborhood by supporting the Council. Whether it’s participating on the Board, on a committee, volunteering, or monetarily, we welcome your contribution.

Thank you for your dedication to our neighborhood and your support of the Macalester-Groveland Community Council!
