Supporting Our Community During Times of Need
The COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund was established in March 2020 to support nonprofits as they responded to the spread of coronavirus in our community. Thanks to the care and generosity of donors, in 2020, more than $7 million in emergency funding was provided to Franklin County nonprofits. The COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund application period ended September 7, 2021.
While the Foundation’s commitment to supporting nonprofits in responding to the virus’ ongoing effects continues, it has expanded its emergency response efforts to prioritize two additional areas: digital equity and youth.
