Sorenson Impact Foundation: Equitable & Resilient Recovery Grant Program

The Sorenson Impact Foundation is seeking to support solutions that can contribute to a more equitable and resilient recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting economic crisis. SIF is specifically targeting solutions that enable recovery through developing and growing businesses as well as the communities they’re in to equitably rebuild coming out of the current social, health, and economic crisis. We are seeking proposals across the following three focus areas: 1) Equitable Access to Wealth Creation Through Entrepreneurship: Solutions that enable and empower successful entrepreneurship for underserved or underrepresented communities such as people of color, women, and entrepreneurs in rural areas. 2) Democratized Access to Capital and Community Investment: Solutions that enable more equitable access to capital for entrepreneurs in underserved or underrepresented communities. This focus area includes empowering and expanding community investment activity. 3) Workforce Development: Solutions to help communities develop the skills and training required for the jobs of the future in a post-pandemic world. Amount: Grants will range from $25,000-$250,000. Eligibility: No limitations are indicated. Solutions must be primarily focused on the United States and must be targeting underserved and underrepresented communities. Deadline: August 30, 2020
