CMCF receives emergency fund grant of $100,000
The Central Minnesota Community Foundation announced it received a grant of $100,000 from The Bremer Emergency Fund of the Otto Bremer Foundation, with support from Bremer Banks.
The money will be divided between the CMCF and its two affiliates, the Brainerd Lakes Area Community Foundation and the Willmar Area Community Foundation. A grant of $20,000 will be designated for the Brainerd area.
The purpose of the grant is to provide emergency assistance to individuals or families in the three areas. Each of the foundations has an established process for reviewing requests for one-time assistance at a time of crisis.
To access the Spirit of Hope funds, individuals must be working with the Salvation Army or Bridges of Hope in the Brainerd area. These two agencies can assist people and determine if they are eligible to receive assistance for their emergency needs.
