About this funder:



NOTE: The application process will remain open throughout the COVID-19 crisis or until further notice is given. Grants will be reviewed and awarded on a bi-weekly basis until further notice.

In order to support organizations that are serving those affected by the COVID-19 outbreak, Berrien Community Foundation and United Way of Southwest Michigan are offering emergency grants.

At this time, these grants will focus on programs doing emergency relief. Please keep in mind that urgent needs will be prioritized over longer term sustainability projects. Applicants are asked to look at their ability to serve over the next 2-4 weeks and describe any needs/gaps in service that they anticipate having in that time frame. 

For example:

  • food pantries
  • child and baby needs
  • needs for shelters
  • help for homebound seniors
