Resources for Local Nonprofits During the Coronavirus Crisis

Links to Funding Sources, Guidance on the CARES Act, More


We know that our local nonprofit organizations are facing unprecedented challenges during the current coronavirus crisis. Many have questions about loans and grants available through the new federal CARES (Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act, as well as potential local and state funding sources.

We're trying to learn more about these opportunities, too. To share what we’ve learned, we’ve put together the following list of related resources. As we learn more, we’ll continue to update this list. Given the fluid and changing nature of these opportunities, not all information may be up-to-the-minute.

Throughout this difficult time, know that all of us at the Community Foundation are committed to maintaining a steady presence. Please continue to engage with us, whether through email, social media, or by phone. We will do what we can to help.
