 THE ST. PAUL COMPANIES GRANTS STRENGTHEN COMMUNITY-BASED
 EDUCATION PROGRAMS IN THE TWIN CITIES
 ST. PAUL, Minn., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Grants totaling $204,265 from The St. Paul Companies will assist eight nonprofit organizations in strengthening their community-based education programs in the Twin Cities. These organizations were among 15 nonprofit organizations that received more than $341,000 in grants from The St. Paul during the third quarter of 1992.
 One of the education organizations receiving a grant was the American Indian Research and Policy Institute. The $19,000 grant will be used to establish a center and implement programs. Its initial program involves a two-day symposium to be held at Hamline University to explore the unique issues facing American Indians as they differ from those facing other people of color. "We feel this gathering will be the first step toward reaching an understanding and addressing the issues of contemporary American Indians," said Ron Otterson, a member of the Institute's steering committee.
 Additional education grants in the Twin Cities area included Cherokee Park United Church for its Building Blocks Tutorial, a program for educationally at-risk children, $8,600; Education Ventures, Inc. for its All Parents Teach program encouraging parental involvement in education, $5,000; Junior Achievement of the Upper Midwest, Inc. for its Success Now program supporting 100 African American Men, $20,000; the Minnesota Higher Education System for a video teleconference of its 80 campuses to address racism and bigotry on Minnesota campuses, $10,000; and School Sisters of Notre Dame for their English As a Second Language program, $21,665. In addition, two-year grants were awarded to Resources for Child Caring, Inc. for operating support, $70,000; and United Negro College Fund, Inc. for scholarships supporting Minnesota students, $50,000.
 Grants to human services organizations in the St. Paul area included the Children's Defense Fund-Minnesota Project for operating support in its work to provide information about the physical and mental health needs of Minnesota children, $20,000; and United Handicapped Federation for operating support, $30,000 over two years.
 Humanities grants in St. Paul included Hallie Q. Brown/Reminiscence Project for work on a book of personal histories of seniors in the Summit-University Neighborhood of St. Paul, $6,000; and Northern Clay Center for operating support of this ceramic art center, $7,500.
 Grants for advancing the nonprofit sector included support for the annual meeting of the Independent Sector, Shaping Our Future: Paths to Greater Impact, being held in the Twin Cities, $15,000.
 Community-related grants in the St. Paul area included St. Paul Public Schools/Juvenile Crime Prevention Curriculum for education in the 1992-93 school year, $44,008; and Twin Cities Neighborhood Housing Services, Inc. for operating support for its work in preserving and creating affordable housing for low- and moderate-income families, $15,000.
