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.
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.
For nonprofits seeking assistance related to COVID-19: The COVID-19 Emergency Response 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.
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.
