COVID-19 Northwest Wisconsin Response Fund Fund
About This Fund
Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation is partnering with Head of the Lakes United Way to coordinate this fund.
The priorities of this fund include:
• Addressing the needs of staff of nonprofit organizations impacted by reduced or lost employment or benefits, as well as program providers (e.g., contractors, volunteers, etc.)
• Supporting adaptions necessary to continue functioning (e.g., protective equipment for staff and volunteers, technology, supplies)
• Developing community wellbeing for coping and healing, including youth development, mental health, healthy relationships, etc.
• Providing one-time operating support to organizations experiencing increased demand for services, diminishing volunteer support, and those serving vulnerable populations, including Black, Indigenous, People of Color, people with physical and mental disabilities, people experiencing homelessness, people with low incomes, people with limited English proficiency, etc.
