COVID-19 Relief Fund Fund

About This Fund

To address a growing need for emergency funds and assistance, the Winona Community Foundation Board of Directors has established a COVID-19 Relief Fund. It has already received more than $25,000 in commitments from Gillett Pepsi® La Crosse, Merchants Bank, WNB Financial, the Dahl Family Foundation, and Pat and Jerry Papenfuss. The Foundation is actively soliciting additions to this fund to meet community needs during this crisis.

The new fund will allow the Foundation to distribute every donated dollar back into the community, to expand its reach by adding partner nonprofits, and to provide direct benefit to community nonprofits. Between the new fund and the EAF, the Foundation is positioned to provide more than $120,000 in direct assistance through new and established nonprofit partners.

The COVID-19 Relief Fund also has the flexibility to fund key areas such as how to support the homeless population during a time where there is a “shelter in place” order. Any remaining funds will be distributed to nonprofit organizations working to reestablish operations post pandemic. The Winona Community Foundation will waive all fees, and no dollars will remain in the Winona Community Foundation.
