Beginning in March 2020, the Community Foundation began grantmaking to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our initial grants were emergency grants to support nonprofits serving those most vulnerable to the crisis. We awarded $6.7 million from March through August 2020.
In October 2020 we awarded $2 million to nonprofits that had been negatively impacted by the pandemic financially.
We envision future grantmaking to be a multi-year approach focusing, sequentially, on nonprofit resiliency, re-envisioning, and rebuilding. We recognize that our community depends on a healthy nonprofit sector and thus our approach will include monetary and non-monetary support.
Of course, we recognize that the pandemic may bring unexpected needs and require that we shift our plans. We pledge to remain nimble and ready to respond.
