The Foundation has created the COVID-19 Response Fund as a mechanism to best support area nonprofits delivering critical services during this unprecedented time. The Foundation has seeded the fund with $100,000 to respond to immediate needs and continues to raise additional funding for ongoing expenses incurred by nonprofits. All money raised will be granted to nonprofits working in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan. 

The COVID-19 Response Fund of the Greater Toledo Community Foundation requests proposals from nonprofit organizations in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan that incurred unexpected expenses working with communities who are disproportionately impacted by coronavirus and the economic consequences of the outbreak. 

  • Grants will address the following priority areas:
    • Immediate basic needs of economically vulnerable populations caused by closures and cancellations related to COVID-19
    • The elderly and other high-risk populations who are experiencing a COVID-19 impact
    • Residents who are food insecure
    • Residents who have no medical insurance or who are underinsured
  • Proposals will only be considered from nonprofit, charitable organizations which have been designated as having tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service code.
  • Applicant organizations must be located in and providing services for residents of northwest Ohio or southeast Michigan. 
  • The COVID-19 Response Fund seeks applications from organizations with a demonstrated track record of service provision through established programs. 
  • The fund will consider supporting expenses incurred after March 18, 2020.
