The Bernick Family Foundation and the Central Minnesota Community Foundation announced $150,000 will be available in the fourth annual round of Bernick Family Foundation community grants.
Letters of inquiry will be accepted through Sept. 1.
“We received 120 applications just last year alone, so we know there are plenty of worthy causes that could use support,” said Jason Bernick, Bernick’s director of corporate affairs, in a news release. “We are very pleased that we’ll be able to fund another group of great projects again this year.”
The Bernick Family Foundation will accept applications for grants ranging from $3,000 to $50,000 in two focus areas: youth and education or health and fitness. Applicants must be 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, schools or government entities serving communities in which Bernick’s operates, including the areas in and around Alexandria, Bemidji, Brainerd, Duluth, St. Cloud, and Willmar, Minnesota and Dresser, Wisconsin.
Complete grant guidelines and electronic applications are available through CMCF’s website at www.communitygiving.org/pages/BernicksFund/ . Letters of inquiry must be submitted online by midnight on Sept. 1. Nonprofits with specific questions should contact Susan Lorenz at firstname.lastname@example.org .
The Bernick Family Foundation was established as a component of the Central Minnesota Community Foundation in 1989 to help Bernick’s and the Bernick Family support organizations that reflect the family’s core values, while providing leadership in responding to emerging community needs.
