About this funder:
The Northern New York Community Foundation joins the region and the rest of the world in working to meet unprecedented challenges during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. With care for the residents of Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties in mind, the Foundation is taking measures that continue to best serve our community, donors, and other partners.
The Foundation’s Board of Directors has approved a Community Support Fund to help partner agencies and other nonprofit organizations in Jefferson, Lewis and St. Lawrence counties that work to support essential needs for thousands of our neighbors. Currently, that effort will be directed at basic needs.
Given the Community Foundation’s long-standing annual support of food pantries, soup kitchens and school backpack programs across the tri-county region, the Community Foundation will make up to a total of $50,000 in funding available that can be rapidly deployed to help buffer the impact that may be seen in the coming weeks and months.
The Foundation announces the availability of micro grants for food pantries, soup kitchens and non-governmental funded school pantry programs. In the early stages, our intent is to help many organizations at modest levels rather than a few larger grants.
