Creating a Relief Fund in Greater Minnesota
Learn more about MCAF and their transformational work in Martin County in This Present Moment.
Jason Subbert, chair of the Martin County Area Foundation (MCAF), speaks about the impact recent events have had on the south-central Minnesota county. MCAF responded to urgent community needs by creating a relief fund early in the COVID-19 pandemic.
"Martin County was one of the first counties in the state that was hit with COVID. We had 10 cases right away, before anyone really knew what was going on," says Jason. "We knew we were going into this, and we don’t know what it’s all about, but we’re going to have to put some effort forward into helping people. Not only now, but in the future with a relief fund, which we’ve never had before."
