COVID-19 Response Fund 

Mid-Nebraska Community Foundation has set up a COVID-19 Response Fund to aid local nonprofit organizations in the North Platte area that are providing basic needs to people impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the consequences of the outbreak.    

100% of donations received will be used to help local nonprofits deal with responding to the COVID-19 outbreak. The COVID-19 Response Fund is off to a good start thanks to early donors and to funds at the community foundation available for response to this challenging situation.

Payouts from the COVID-19 Response Fund will provide financial help to nonprofits focusing on providing basic needs, such as food, shelter, healthcare and special needs of at-risk groups of people. 

Donations to the COVID-19 Response Fund will be deposited in local banks until paid out to local nonprofits.
