Regional COVID-19 Recovery

COVID-19 required all of us to adapt. So the Richard King Mellon Foundation quickly pivoted from its original Strategic Plan and awarded more than $33 million in 2020 to address COVID and its consequences.

Our support for regional COVID recovery will continue as part of our 2021-2030 Strategic Plan.

We know the impacts of the pandemic will continue for years to come, and our new Strategic Plan provides multiple effective pathways to address those impacts and accelerate recovery. We welcome your great ideas.
