About the Fund

The East Bay Community Foundation’s COVID-19: A Just East Bay Response Fund will rapidly deploy resources to organizations addressing the social and economic impacts of the broader COVID-19 outbreak, including the immediate needs of communities and organizations affected by coronavirus-related closures.

EBCF community partners are reporting extreme economic hardship across vulnerable populations as well as severe impacts to organizational operations that affect a range of programming including the arts, education, health, housing, civic engagement, youth, economic development, and other vital community services. 

Grant Priorities

The COVID-19: A Just East Bay Response Fund will prioritize resources to organizations serving extremely vulnerable populations who are unlikely to receive state or federal support, including:

  • undocumented immigrants,
  • unsheltered individuals,
  • those employed via cash economy (e.g. day laborers, domestic workers),
  • uninsured and under-insured, youth,
  • victims of domestic violence,
  • low-income seniors, and
  • the formerly incarcerated.

Funding Categories

  • Direct financial assistance to individuals and families experiencing extreme economic hardship
  • Frontline organizations providing essential services to priority populations
  • General Operating Support to existing grantees to support their operations and related impacts during the crisis
  • Organizing and Systems Change
