The Sioux Falls Area Community Foundation continues to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and its consequences throughout our community.
These are unprecedented times and we are all navigating uncharted waters. And while the effects of this outbreak on our area continue to unfold, the Foundation is committed to stepping forward to help our community and those who call it home.
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.
COVID-19 has taken a dramatic toll on our non-profit sector, creating new and increased demands for our front-line neighborhood nonprofits. 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.
