Compeer Financial Pledges Rural COVID-19 Relief
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 03/10/2021

The Sun Prairie-based Compeer Financial is allocating $667,000 in 2021 to COVID-19 relief efforts across the cooperative's three-state territory, which includes Wisconsin, Illinois and Minnesota.

Donations will be made to local and rural community foundations for pandemic response efforts, grants for organizations and emergency response providers, funding for regional foodbanks, donations to rural healthcare facilities and a new rural schools education grant. Funding comes from the Compeer Financial Fund for Rural America, the organization's corporate giving program.

"This past year, we have seen how working together with our community partners can make a difference," said Compeer Marketing Officer John Monson. "In 2020, our local communities had some pretty immediate needs, and still today, the impacts of COVID-19 persist. We are committed to continuing the efforts we made last year, and exploring new opportunities in 2021."

In 2019, Compeer donated $830,000 for similar efforts.
