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 2022, the Macalester-Groveland Community Council (MGCC) continued to work towards representing all voices of the community:

  • So far, MGCC Board and Committees have held over 50 public meetings in 2022.
  • This year, MGCC has hosted many events and programs, including Frost Fest, a Little Free Library Tour, two community cleanups, Alley Garden Awards, and the neighborhood garage sale. In September, over 1,100 community members joined us at Mac-Grove Fest to celebrate the businesses, organizations, musicians, artists, and residents that make Saint Paul a great place to live, work, learn, and play!
  • MGCC partnered with Mapping Prejudice and Welcoming the Dear Neighbor? to learn more about the racial covenants in Ramsey County and to dive deeper into the history of St. Paul neighborhoods.
  • We welcomed 4 new community members to our Board of Directors in 2022. In April 2023, elections will be held for 6 of the residential board representative seats on the Board of Directors.
  • We launched a new and improved website in January, which was designed to be more user-friendly, modern, and better suited towards MGCC and community members using the site.
  • Our Inclusivity Task Force has worked with a local equity consultant to pursue the goals in our annual Equity and Inclusivity Strategic Action Plan and the creation of an equitable development scorecard for Mac-Grove.

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!
