About the COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund:

Established by The Community Foundation Martin – St. Lucie and seeded by Andrew and Robin Hunt and the Lichtenberger Family Foundation, the COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund will award grants to non-profits that serve the communities’ most vulnerable populations that are stressed by the outbreak. A portion of the Fund will be used to provide critical financial assistance to qualified economically disadvantaged individuals and families.

The Community Foundation will work in partnership with local governments and other local funders including the Children’s Services Councils and United Ways in Martin and St. Lucie Counties and the Hobe Sound Community Chest to ensure the Fund has maximum reach and effectiveness. In addition to offering an opportunity to contribute to the Fund, The Community Foundation is also urging donors to look for opportunities to support the critical needs of nonprofits by making general operating support grants to organizations they wish to help.

Details on how nonprofits might request and access resources from the COVID-19 Response Fund will be announced at a later date, once donations have begun to accumulate in the Fund.
