'We're In This Together'

The Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation is closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic as it continues to make its way across the globe.

These are unprecedented times and we are all navigating uncharted waters. And while the effects of this outbreak on our community are still unfolding, we've compiled a list of ways you can help today:

One Sioux Falls Fund

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

Nonprofits, the County and the City will coordinate to distribute the funds to make sure assistance gets into the right hands.

Support for Local Nonprofits

We know with certainty COVID-19 will impact our non-profit sector. Our nonprofits and charitable organizations need philanthropic support now more than ever. Consider supporting the charities that are close to your heart with a donation today. Learn more.

In response to the coronavirus pandemic, the Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation introduced 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 and/or need emergency operating support.
