Overview:

The Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties, in partnership with philanthropists, business leaders, and governmental entities, announces the establishment of the COVID-19 Response Fund to address the needs of local residents affected by the coronavirus outbreak.

As of March 16, the COVID-19 Response Fund has grown to nearly $700,000.

Community Foundation staff is surveying its nonprofit partners and working with the Disaster Relief Teams of Palm Beach and Martin Counties to understand what support is needed for preparedness, containment, response and recovery. 

The COVID-19 Response Fund will strategically deploy resources to community-based organizations that are working with communities disproportionately impacted by the coronavirus outbreak. 

Community health centers, homeless shelters, preschool and after-school programs, food pantries and others will be impacted. Other social service providers may face increases in demand for services as well. The Foundation is closely monitoring the immediate and long-term needs, local health and economic impact of COVID-19.
