COVID-19 Rapid Response Grants

To expedite our regular granting procedures in this evolving situation, our Board of Directors chose to distribute awards from the Give To Grant Community Impact Fund utilizing a method called “rapid response grantmaking”.

The Community Foundation’s COVID-19 Rapid Response Grant Cycle has closed. We will soon begin implementing the next COVID-19 Recovery Phase: Come Back Stronger.

Our COVID-19 Rapid Response Grants sustained and developed vital community services for residents who stood to lose the most from the unfolding emergency. This is why the ability to rapidly provide flexible resources to nonprofit organizations who are working on the frontlines, engaging and supporting individuals impacted by COVID-19 and the broader ramifications of this health crisis, is so paramount.
