About this funder:



NOTE: We will award grants approximately once a month beginning in April through at least June. The total amount given each month will depend on available funding and applications received.

This is a rolling process and there is no deadline. You may submit an application at anytime while this program is active. If your organization is not selected for a grant in one month, it will remain eligible for funding in subsequent months. There is no need to submit your application again.

If you receive a grant one month, you may apply again to be considered for funding in subsequent months. However, those organizations that have not yet received funding through this program will be given priority.


Our COVID-19 Response Grant Program provides unrestricted funding to organizations as our region navigates the coronavirus pandemic. We recognize that many community organizations are seeing an increased demand for services, having to make significant changes to how they deliver programs, and simply struggling with how to sustain operations over the next months. In response, we are directing a significant portion of the grant funding available from our endowed funds in 2020 to this program, and we are working with our donors to grow the funds available.

We also recognize that our response needs to be flexible and fluid. We will make adjustments over time as more funding becomes available and as we learn more about the needs of our community and the many organizations serving our region. 

Information for Applicants

Funds are unrestricted and may be used as your organization sees fit. The application will ask how you intend to use the funds only so we may better understand your organization’s unique needs. You will not be asked to submit a post-grant evaluation for this program.

You may apply for up to $2,000.
