Overview:

NOTE: Nonprofits seeking assistance can contact the Foundation at [email protected]

The Foundation has announced a new fund to support a community-wide response to the COVID19 outbreak in Worcester County. Seeded with $535,000, the funds will be distributed by grants that will support the interim and long-term needs of organizations working with communities disproportionately impacted by the outbreak.

The source of grants will be the GWCF COVID19 Response Fund, an emergency fund created by the Foundation with resources from GWCF and others. 

Grants will target organizations with deep roots in the community. Many of these groups serve residents without health insurance and/or access to sick days, people with limited English language proficiency, healthcare workers and seniors, among others.
