Response Fund Created to Support Area Nonprofits
Community Foundation looks for a way to help those who are trying to help others.
The Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation has plenty of experience with floods, after the flood of 2012 in Duluth.
One important thing that they learned is when communities are in need it’s vital that nonprofits are equipped. Because of this the foundation has created a 2016 Natural Disaster Immediate Response Fund to support area nonprofits.
“What we’re really trying to do is help nonprofits that help people. It’s a part of the storm damage that sometimes gets overlooked but it’s an important one,” said Rob Karwath.
The community foundation will award nonprofits with grants ranging from 1,000 to 5,000 dollars, particularly in the Ashland and Bayfield area. Donors can contribute to the fund by sending checks via mail, or online.
