NOTE: We understand the COVID-19 outbreak is impacting nonprofits in many ways, including increased demand for their services, lost revenue due to closures and cancelations, as well as other challenges. We are working closely with partners and the nonprofit community to ensure that the grants awarded meet the greatest needs in communities disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. In order to move resources quickly, we are not hosting a formal application process for the Fund. You may email us at [email protected] to make sure we are aware of your needs and can keep them in mind as the granting process progresses and needs become more clear.

Nonprofits need our support more than ever. PCF’s COVID-19 Response Fund will rapidly deploy resources to community-based organizations to help them swiftly and effectively address the effects of the COVID-19 outbreak and mitigation measures in our area.


The COVID-19 Response Fund is a public/private partnership between Placer Community Foundation and Placer County Health and Human Services to respond to the COVID-19 outbreak. The Fund will help support the increased demand that Placer County nonprofit service providers are facing related to the impact of COVID-19. PCF is communicating and coordinately closely with local government and social services organizations to understand where charitable dollars are needed most and have the greatest potential for impact. This includes Placer County Health and Human Services, family resource centers, senior services organizations, food banks and others. Because of the flexible structure of this fund, the grant-making process will be fluid, timely, and nimble to act on opportunities and need.

The Community Foundation expects to move an initial round of grants within the next few weeks. Please check back here to view the latest updates as PCF’s response evolves
