About this funder:



NOTE: We will be sharing guidance regarding grant awards to assist nonprofits in the coming days.

In the face of the coronavirus, we are all being called upon to play a part in safeguarding the health of our family, friends, and neighbors. We have an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others. Our communities’ nonprofits are stepping into the breach to meet new needs, serve our most vulnerable, and adjust to extraordinary and unexpected circumstances.

In Appalachian Ohio, our communities face a substantial philanthropy gap. With nine times fewer philanthropic dollars than the rest of Ohio, Appalachian Ohio does not have the same capacity for grants, scholarships, and partnerships. FAO is working to change that every day.

The Emergency Response Fund was created to award grants to help nonprofits whose resources are and will continue to be, strained over this unprecedented event due to the need for them to expand and modify how they deliver services.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Grants are limited to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, groups fiscally sponsored by a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, or other charitable organizations able to receive a tax-deductible contribution, such as schools, faith-based organizations, and other public entities. 


  • The Appalachian Ohio Emergency Response Fund is not able to offer direct support to individuals or businesses, though nonprofits providing that direct support are welcome to share their needs.
