04/08/2020- As nonprofit organizations across Marinette and Menominee Counties struggle with limited ability to raise funds, the M&M Area Community Foundation is stepping up to help. The Foundation’s Board of Directors has activated the “Impact Fund” to foster a unified philanthropic response to address the impact of the novel coronavirus in communities throughout their two-county service area. The Impact Fund will make grant awards to help nonprofits whose resources are, and will continue to be, strained by COVID-19. Initial funding of $20000 is being provided by the MMACF and representatives say they are hopeful that will grow by additional community donations. More details, including application guidelines, are expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
