Three Rivers Community Foundation Emergency Relief

Offer Valid: 03/29/2020 - 12/31/2020
Support our area in our effort to help those hit hardest by the Corona Virus.



We stand ready to meet critical needs in ISD 728, Elk River, Rogers, Zimmerman, Otsego and surrounding areas as we face the sweeping and unprecedented effects of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

This fund is being hosted by the Three Rivers Community Foundation. Our hope is that you will join us in growing this fund for maximum local impact.

Proceeds will be used to makes grants to nonprofits and local units of government to assist disproportionately affected communities; to address the economic impacts of reduced and lost work resulting from the outbreak; to meet immediate needs of economically vulnerable populations caused by coronavirus-related closures; and to respond to increased demands placed on our stressed social support systems. Over the long-term, the fund can support recovery needs that will inevitably arise.

Gifts to this fund can support services that:

  • Help those whose jobs are affected or will be affected in the near future. 
  • Help those who face food scarcity. 
  • Help those whose household utilities or housing may be affected, and more.
