Foundation Announces COVID-19 Response Grant Program for Nonprofits
In response to the coronavirus pandemic, the Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation is introducing an emergency grant program for local nonprofits.
COVID-19 Response Grants are designed to provide critical financial relief to local nonprofits who, because of the coronavirus outbreak:
- Have seen an extraordinary increase in demand for services
- Need emergency operating support
"COVID-19 has devastated every area of the global economy, including the non-profit sector. To help allay some of the pressures our local nonprofits are facing, the Community Foundation is stepping forward to help," said Patrick Gale, vice president for community investment. "Because of so many across our area who have supported our Community Fund with unrestricted gifts, we are able to flexibly respond to the unexpected and unprecedented needs facing our nonprofit partners. As the effects of this pandemic continue to unfold throughout our community, the Foundation remains committed to serving as a catalyst for good – assessing needs and opportunities, engaging in dialogue and convening resources to help where we can."
COVID-19 Response Grants
Eligible nonprofits are those serving individuals and families in Minnehaha, Lincoln, McCook or Turner counties.
