To help non-profits with additional demand for housing-related services due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Minneapolis Area Realtors® Foundation is providing $40,000 in immediate relief to organizations that are on the front lines of this crisis. The need is greater now than ever and the Foundation’s Board of Trustees has responded with the decision to provide this much-needed support.
The following organizations are each receiving $5,000 grants:
Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative
St. Stephen’s Human Services
Simpson Housing Services
The Bridge for Youth
The MAR Foundation is also taking applications for its annual grant program. The deadline to apply has been extended to May 19, 2020 and applicants will be informed of the funding decision by the end of June. For more information and a link to the application, visit http://margives.org/applications.
If you know of a non-profit that provides housing or housing related services to communities in Hennepin, Carver, Scott, Sibley or McLeod Counties, please urge them to apply.
The Foundation’s Board of Trustees understands this is a difficult time, especially for those helping the most vulnerable in our communities, and is pleased to provide this support.
Thank you, and as always, stay safe and healthy!
Cari Linn, Chair
MAR Foundation Board of Trustees
