Melanie Hoffert

Chief marketing officer, Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation


Melanie Hoffert joined Minnesota’s largest community foundation in 2018 after running her own consultancy and holding leadership roles in both the public and private sectors.

A published author and marketer, Hoffert is very much a storyteller. She leads a team that develops and implements the entire range of marketing and communication strategies to advance the foundation’s mission to inspire generosity, advocate for equity, and invest in community-led solutions. The work she oversaw in 2020 resulted in nearly 1 billion media impressions, spotlighting the foundation’s critical work during a challenging year for nonprofits.
