Regional & Affiliate COVID-19 Community Support Grantmaking

The Central New York Community Foundation’s affiliate funds have joined forces with local partners to provide assistance to organizations working with residents who are disproportionately impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the economic consequences of this outbreak. 

These grants are intended to help our communities respond to the challenges caused by the pandemic by addressing the basic needs of residents. Funds will be released on a rolling basis as fundraising continues throughout the outbreak and recovery phases of the crisis. Because this is an evolving situation, these will be rapid-response, short-term grants (up to 4 weeks of funding) that may be renewable based on ongoing need and available resources.

Applicants are asked to demonstrate potential to:

  • Address a Basic Need (such as food, housing, childcare, etc.)
  • Serve vulnerable populations (especially in underserved neighborhoods)
  • Commit to documenting services provided and impact
