Approved Coordinated assistance will begin within 24 hours. Coordinated assistance could include connecting to additional resource providers outside of this fund in an effort to meet the fully requested need.
The Carbon County COVID-19 Relief Fund
The Red Lodge Area Community Foundation is taking actions to take care of our staff, our nonprofits and our community. In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Foundation is now accepting donations for the Carbon County COVID-19 Relief Fund. These funds will be available to support:
- Area nonprofits’ individual response efforts
- Local agencies and individuals
- Emergent community needs
While the purpose of the fund is to focus on helping individuals and nonprofit organizations, assistance to the business community may be considered in the future when we know what other forms of assistance may be available to businesses and the longer term effects of the pandemic. In a declared disaster situation, it is possible for the Foundation to make grants to businesses for long term recovery for things not covered by other means such as insurance or government aid. Since the government is considering legislation which will specifically address business needs with loans and grants to help businesses weather this situation, for now, we will leave business assistance to the government.
The Foundation has a long history in efficiently managing and providing quick turnaround to get the funds to where they are needed most. The Foundation is committed to being nimble, adaptive and transparent in all of these efforts.

- Currently, our first priority and focus is on providing funds to nonprofit organizations providing disaster relief efforts and individuals negatively affected by COVID-19 impacts, who are in need of assistance.
