About this funder:



Community Benefit Financial Company Emergency Fund

In response to COVID-19, the Otto Bremer Trust (OBT) has established a $50 million emergency fund through its Community Benefit Financial Company (CBFC) subsidiary to provide financial support to Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, and Montana nonprofits and other community organizations impacted by and responding to the pandemic.

The fund will primarily be available to provide small grants to qualified organizations in our region.

The fund is designated for emergency requests only and is separate from our normal grantmaking process. Non-emergency requests should go through our regular application process.

Having an existing grant or a grant application in process will not impact your eligibility to apply to the fund. If you have questions about an existing grant, please contact your program officer.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • All nonprofit organizations in Minnesota, Wisconsin, North Dakota, and Montana are welcome to apply for emergency funding.
  • Under IRS regulations, the use of funding must advance the charitable objectives of the Otto Bremer Trust.
