Working Partnerships is rapidly working to assist working families impacted by COVID-19.

Please consider donating to our Emergency Relief Fund.

To give to the Working Partnerships Emergency Relief Fund:

1. Click on the “Donate” button below.  This is for a credit card. Our web fundraising vendor is waiving some processing fees during this crisis.

2. Our fund is housed at the Building Trades Credit Union. You can donate through:

  • A. Funds transfer from your bank. Each bank has different methods and may need different info from us for this option, so call Doug at 612-805-4236 or Andie at 612-805-9931 to coordinate.
  • B. Drop off a physical check to “Working Partnerships Emergency Fund” at the Shoreview or Maple Grove BTCU bank branches. Use the drive-thru or the After Hours Depository slot at each location:

3. We can also accept credit card donations over the phone, however we would prefer this to be the last-ditch option because processing fees are not yet waived by Square.
