MINNEAPOLIS – The American Swedish Institute announced its Winter 2022 round of awards made through the ASI Community Fund, offering short-term aid to service-oriented organizations primarily in the Phillips and adjacent Minneapolis neighborhoods. Award amounts ranged from $1,000 to $2,500, for a total of $7,000 awarded to the following: the Phillips West Neighborhood Organization, Banyan Community, Ebenezer Senior Care’s Minneapolis Campus and the Corcoran Neighborhood Organization. The ASI Community Fund was founded in the wake of George Floyd’s murder and seeks to help respond to emerging needs and support ASI neighbors to build, invigorate and reimagine our shared community. More than $27,000 in awards have been given since the Fund’s establishment in June 2020. Donations are intended to support organizations and initiatives aligned with ASI’s general mission and vision.
ASI Community Fund recipients for Winter 2022:
The next ASI Community Fund submission deadline is July 31, 2022, with twice-yearly deadlines. For more information, including granting criteria and a link to the online application, please visit asimn.org/support/asi-community-fund.
The Fund was established with independent donations, mostly by individuals, with an ASI staff committee selecting recipients. It is rooted in ASI’s founding by Swedish immigrants and reflects a commitment to sharing stories of migration among many immigrant-based organizations in the Phillips neighborhood, celebrating mutual support and collective well-being. ASI has built longstanding community relationships during the past 15 years through collaborative programs including the Pippi Project at Andersen and Bancroft elementary schools, PICA Head Start graduations and the Story Swap program with Wellstone International High School. ASI also hosts scheduled U.S. naturalization ceremonies and National Night Out, always recognizing that there is more we can do to build bridges for cross-cultural understanding. Future gifts will allow the Fund to grow and continue to serve the community. To contribute to the Fund, please visit asimn.org/giving.
