About this funder:
The Heartland United Way and the Greater Grand Island Community Foundation have partnered to launch a relief fund, the COVID-19 Community Compassion Fund, to help organizations and individuals most in need of assistance. This fund will ensure people have access to life’s essentials, such as food and shelter and ensure community partner organizations can continue to do their vital local work.
The COVID-19 Community Compassion fund provides nonprofit organizations with flexible resources to address the impact of the COVID-19 public health crisis on our community, including immediate basic needs, gaps in service, and operational challenges.
