Coronavirus Response Fund Fund

About This Fund

The Coronavirus Response Fund is a coalition of philanthropy, government, and business partners who united to create a Response Fund that will rapidly deploy resources to community-based organizations at the frontlines of Central Kentucky’s current Coronavirus pandemic. Led by a partnership between United Way of the Bluegrass (UWBG) and Blue Grass Community Foundation (BGCF), the fund will provide flexible resources to organizations in the Central Kentucky region working with communities who are disproportionately impacted by the Coronavirus and the economic consequences of the outbreak.

To date, the Coronavirus Response Fund has awarded more than $620,000 in charitable grants to fund organizations and programs in our joint service region with strong experience working to provide residents with access to food, prescriptions/healthcare and other childcare and basic needs. The fund is designed to complement the work of local public health, nonprofit, and government entities, and to expand local capacity to support individuals and families experiencing hardship because of the outbreak and related closures and disruptions.
