COVID-19 Two Harbors Area Community Fund Fund
About This Fund
The mission of the COVID-19 Two Harbors Area Community Fund is to respond to the needs identified in our community to deploy resources to non-profit organizations or public entities at the frontlines of the coronavirus outbreak. These entities are those working with communities who are disproportionately impacted by coronavirus and its consequences.
The COVID-19 Response Fund focuses on the following priorities:
• Addressing the needs of staff of nonprofit organizations impacted by reduced or lost employment or benefits, as well 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.
