EMERGENCY RESPONSE

Supporting our Community During Coronavirus

On Monday, March 9,​ Ohio Governor Mike DeWine declared a state of emergency. As a result, the Foundation has activated its Emergency Response Fund.

 

This fund assists nonprofit organizations that are responding to the spread of COVID-19 and experiencing financial challenges by doing so, placing a priority on organizations serving people who are most impacted by the pandemic due to health or economic adversity. This would include any disenfranchised population or community.

“We are one community. During times of crisis it is critical we join forces to support each other. The Foundation is committed to being a point of access for those who want to assist others, while also doing what we can with these resources to be of help to this community.”

 

Douglas F. Kridler, President and CEO of the Columbus Foundation

Nonprofit organizations in Franklin County that have been directly affected and are responding to the spread of COVID-19 in the community can apply for financial help. Grants will support organizations responding to the needs of marginalized communities or populations.
