No One Fights Alone.

We Fight Together: Against the Coronavirus Impact

This past weekend NGCF posted a message on our social media that ‘no one fights alone.’ Today, we put those words to action with the creation of the NGCF Coronavirus Relief Fund. As we process the news of the spread of coronavirus and how it is impacting the community, we call home – and that you call home – we know it is time to fight, together.

NGCF’s advisory committee will oversee the distribution of funds raised. The committee includes members of our NGCF board of directors who represent all of North Georgia.

We understand this epidemic will impact our community and our local nonprofits in many ways, including increased demand for their services, lost revenue due to closures and cancellations, as well as other challenges.

We look forward to the day that the funds raised will no longer be needed to fight the effects of the coronavirus and the battle has been won. At that time, remaining funds will become part of our Disaster Relief Fund which is used for similar needs that arise in our community.
