As the region responds to the immediate challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Foundation requests proposals from nonprofit organizations who are most at risk and who have the highest impact on health and well-being, economic mobility, and economic development.
Consideration will be given to requests that focus on:
- Sustaining operations for recent grantees with acute, unexpected financial needs created by the COVID-19 pandemic
- Implementing necessary operational adjustment in response to the crisis
- Supporting costs that will not be addressed by federal or state stimulus or that might require a bridge until those funds are made available
- Creating partnerships across nonprofit, public, and for-profit sectors aimed at temporary solutions to crisis-driven needs
Additional guidance can be found on the COVID-19 Emergency Operating Support Fund online application. Funding requests closed Monday, April 6 at 5:00 pm.
Future rounds of additional emergency funding may be available and will be announced on this website and other media channels.
