You’ll be a friendly face socializing with them, someone to physically assist during activities, or a support for set up or clean up.

Mission Statement

The Amherst H. Wilder Foundation mission is to promote the social welfare of people living in Greater Saint Paul by all appropriate means without regard to age, race, religion or social status. Our vision is a vibrant community where all individuals, families, and neighborhoods can prosper, with opportunities to work, to be engaged in their communities, to live in decent housing, to attend good schools, and to receive support during times of need.


The Amherst H. Wilder Foundation is a nonprofit health and human services organization that has served the greater Saint Paul, MN area since 1906. Wilder is not a grant-making foundation, but a public charity as defined by section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Wilder creates lasting, positive change rooted in people through direct services, research and community building. Last year we served more than 6,600 people through programs dedicated to family stability and mental health, engaged thousands more through community initiatives and worked with more than 150 organizations to produce 150+ evaluations and research reports that inform work toward the common good.
