Northland non-profits will see additional help in their on-going flood-recovery, following a joint donation from the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation and the Margaret A Cargill Foundation.  $500,000 – the largest outside donation to date from the agency – will address a wide-variety of needs these non-profits have.

Five months after the June 2012 floods in the Twin Ports, officials were witness to the on-going efforts by non-profit organizations to recover.  Holly C. Sampson, president of the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation shares:

“Our work at the Community Foundation has revealed that nonprofit organizations need significant additional resources for their flood recovery work. Because of this grant, local recovery efforts will surge forward in a coordinated, collaborative fashion. Much critical work remains, especially with winter approaching.”

The money, which came as a grant from the Eden Prairie, MN based Margaret A. Cargill Foundation, will be used to address three specific areas of concern:  Supporting disaster case managers, addressing unmet needs through the Long-Term Recovery Committee, and assisting area nonprofits impacted by the flood.
