Children’s Law Center Awarded OneMPLS Pandemic Relief Grant
Minneapolis Foundation awarded CLC a grant of $24,000 to support wellness and remote working conditions for staff.
“Over the past two years, our local nonprofit community has showed extraordinary grit and resilience during a time of unprecedented need,” said Chanda Smith Baker, Senior Vice President of Impact at the Minneapolis Foundation. “Many organizations had to pivot quickly, serving more people or adapting their programs in response to the pandemic, and these changes are stretching their capacity. This grant round is designed to provide support as these nonprofits continue to provide important services.” Grant recipients will use funding for a variety of needs flowing from the pandemic, including investments in technology, staffing to properly manage restricted state and federal funding or to adapt their programs, staff wellness and incentives to combat burnout, and planning and visioning resources to help nonprofit leaders ensure sustainable operations.
