Overview:

At the Women’s Foundation of Minnesota (WFMN), a statewide community foundation, our mission is to invest in innovation to drive gender and racial equity. Women and girls are distinctly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2016, WFMN created the Community Response Fund to meet the urgent needs of communities across Minnesota who are working at the frontlines of gender and racial equity. In response to the pandemic, WFMN is leveraging our responsive grantmaking infrastructure to launch the COVID-19 Women and Girls Response Fund, which will award a half-million dollars in emergency grants of up to $10,000 to organizations and initiatives serving women and girls experiencing gender-based violence, older women, women and girls who need short-term financial support for everyday needs due to the effects of COVID-19 (childcare, eldercare, food, housing, transportation, health, and wellness.)

Grant Information & Timeline

Grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded for general operating support to organizations and initiatives fulfilling the urgent needs of women and girls experiencing gender-based violence, older women, women and girls who need short-term financial support for everyday needs due to the effects of COVID-19 (childcare, eldercare, food, housing, transportation, health, and wellness.) Grant decisions will be made by WFMN staff who have been listening and engaging to understand the short- and long-term impact of COVID-19 and related underlying issues. The foundation uses all the information gathered to inform and evolve our grantmaking decisions and strategies. At the end of the grant period, grantee-partners will be asked to submit a brief survey.
