The Community Foundation for Brevard, the Space Coast Health Foundation, and United Way of Brevard announced the establishment of the Brevard COVID-19 Response.
The three organizations are working with several local partners across sectors to understand how organizations are providing important services to those most in need in Brevard. The funders will provide additional financial resources to nonprofit agencies and individuals on the Space Coast most impacted by the growing economic devastation caused by COVID-19.
The following areas of need will be a focus of the Brevard COVID-19 Response:
FOOD SUPPORT: Access to food will be critical with school closings, reduced hours in some families and the closure of our senior lunch sites.
EMERGENCY FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE: Families and individuals struggling with basic needs due to job loss.
FRONT-LINE, NONPROFIT AGENCIES: Funds will provide additional resources to those organizations that need to adapt their programs and services in this environment. The focus will be on working with Brevard’s most vulnerable residents needing assistance.
We were formed in 1981 by community leaders, including W. G. “Doc” Strawbridge, who believed that charitable giving is an incredibly powerful way to make our local community a better place for us all. Since then, the Foundation has strengthened communities by connecting charitably-minded people to the causes that matter most to them, and by stewarding resources as donors intended. We are organized as a 501(c)(3) public charity, allowing us to receive gifts from people who wish to maximize tax benefits while supporting nonprofit groups and charitable causes.
We are a nonprofit too. Donate to Giving Compass to help us guide donors toward practices that advance equity.
