About the Fund

In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, the Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation, in partnership with the City of Sioux Falls and local businesses, established the One Sioux Falls Fund, a disaster fund to help residents in the Sioux Falls MSA (Minnehaha, Lincoln, McCook and Turner counties) avoid evictions if they were unable to work due to COVID-19.

As of July 2020, businesses, families and individuals have contributed more than $3.3 million to the One Sioux Falls Fund, helping more than 2,900 individuals and families in our community remain housed.

In August 2020, the Community Foundation announced a partnership with the Minnehaha County Human Services Department through which the One Sioux Falls Fund will help provide continued financial assistance for rent, mortgage and utility costs for individuals and families suffering economic effects of the pandemic.
