The One Fund exists to support local African American ministries whose communities suffer from historic inequities and recent traumatic events. These communities now face a deepening disproportionate economic crisis alongside racial injustice.
Shortly after COVID-19 began, a small group of leaders gathered to respond to the disproportionate financial impact that African American churches in Minnesota were facing. The One Fund was launched and seed funds were donated by sponsoring churches.
As generosity multiplies, gifts continue to come in from across Minnesota and our broader nation.
The One Fund has raised $400,000. We aim to raise $111,000 together on November 1st and an additional $500,000 by May 25th to complete our goal.
On November 1st, 2020 churches across Minnesota will highlight the following in their Sunday service:
- Proclaim that we are the One Body of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
- Celebrate the generous sharing of resources between churches through The One Fund to support the work of Gospel-centered African American churches and ministries.
- Invite their congregation to participate in reaching our two goals of $111,000 (11.1.20) and $1,000,000 (5.25.2021).

We invite you to join The One Fund to ensure churches in our state can continue providing critical life-giving spiritual and practical service and support to their communities. Together we can make a difference as we move towards rebuilding and restoring our cities through the Church.
"Our desire is not that others might be relieved while you are hard pressed, but that there might be equality. At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. The goal is equality." 2 Corinthians 8:13-14
