Supporting our Community During Coronavirus
The Emergency Response Fund was established in March 2020 to address challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic. As our community continues to address the effects of the pandemic during 2021, the Foundation’s commitment to supporting nonprofit organizations that are responding to the virus’ ongoing effects also continues. The fund prioritizes organizations meeting community needs that either arise due to, or continue during, the pandemic, helping assure the continuation of crucial health, education, and social services.
“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 seek to assist others, while also working with our nonprofit partners to put these resources to greatest use in the community.”
Douglas F. Kridler, President and CEO of the Columbus Foundation
