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 on a rolling basis, from April 2020 through 2021.
In addition, we created the WFMN Resource List for Women & Girls Impacted by COVID-19 for nonprofits directly working with women and girls and communities deeply impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in Minnesota.
The list includes links to websites that are updated regularly with relevant information for the individuals and communities you serve. If your organization would like to add to this list, please email [email protected].

WFMN invites Minnesota 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) to apply for emergency grants of up to $10,000.
Grants submitted after June 12, 2020, will be reviewed and awarded on a rolling deadline through 2021.
