About this funder:



COVID-19 Response Initiative

Gulf Coast Community Foundation has responded quickly and strategically to the impacts of COVID-19 in our region. We partnered with Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation to launch the COVID-19 Response Initiative, a joint philanthropic initiative to complement governmental response to the pandemic and ensure the well-being of our region. Through the initial phase of our initiative, we have invested $2.2 million in grants to ease strains on lead health, human-service, and safety organizations serving those hit hardest by the COVID-19 crisis.

Our initiative is designed to adapt and evolve as our communities move from response to recovery and eventually rebuilding. While we continue to provide immediate relief to nonprofit partners that are serving the most vulnerable, we also will build the capacity of lead agencies to meet longer-term needs yet to come.
