Greetings from East Side Funders Group!

Please check out and share this opportunity for East Side nonprofit organizations to receive COVID-19 recovery funding. The East Side Resilience Fund prioritizes supporting organizations led by and for Black people, Indigenous people, and people of color (BIPOC) on the East Side of Saint Paul (Dayton’s Bluff and Payne Phalen Neighborhoods) that have been impacted by COVID-19. The goal of this fund is to strengthen organizations impacted by COVID-19 and their communities. Applicants may request between $1,000 and $10,000 of flexible funding to support health and resilience of their staff and/or organization. All funding decisions will be made in partnership with a cohort of East Side residents. Please share widely - we are looking to reach organizations that traditional philanthropy may have missed.

Please see the flyer (click here) for more information or to apply (URL to application - https://forms.gle/qCctuWFa2zSR9U117). We are accepting written or video submissions. Applications are due on August 12, 2020.

If you are a funder and you would like to contribute to the fund, please contact Erin Jerabek Heelan directly at erin@eastsidefundersgroup.org or 612-310-3715.
