George Floyd’s murder and the community unrest that followed have affected the Twin Cities, the region, and the world. We are inspired by the multiple community-led efforts to respond and rebuild. We are glad to be an initial contributor to the “Twin Cities Rebuild for the Future Fund” which will distribute funding quickly to community-led efforts to support micro- and minority-owned small businesses.
Greater Twin Cities United Way, the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation and The Minneapolis Foundation established the fund with pooled investments exceeding $1 million. The fund will cover repairs, equipment, technology, building materials, relocation expenses and more. Funding will be distributed in late June to multiple community-led business support initiatives and business-focused nonprofits after an invitation-only process.
