Donate to the COVID-19 Response Fund
100% of donations received will be used to help local nonprofits deal with responding to the COVID-19 outbreak. The COVID-19 Response Fund is off to a good start thanks to early donors and to funds at the community foundation available for response to this challenging situation.
Payouts from the COVID-19 Response Fund will provide financial help to nonprofits focusing on providing basic needs, such as food, shelter, healthcare, and special needs of at-risk groups of people.
Donations to the COVID-19 Response Fund will be deposited in local banks until paid out to local nonprofits.
