COVID-19 Response Fund Fund
About This Fund
When a disaster happens, our community wants to help. The Greater Dubuque Disaster Recovery Fund was created to provide a collaborative option for donors to help address both immediate and long-term unmet needs that will arise during times of disaster. The intention of the DRF is to provide a nimble philanthropic fund for the Dubuque region in the face of uncertainty caused by disaster. It was created to supplement, not replace, existing resources and services provided by nonprofits and local, state and federal agencies. Each disaster is unique and unanticipated needs will arise. This fund is intended to be flexible and responsive in meeting needs that are not otherwise covered by existing programs.
With the Disaster Recovery Fund, the Community Foundation will make grants focused on reducing the economic and health impacts on vulnerable populations prior to and following a disaster as well as long-term needs that may emerge. Grants will supplement, not replace, other resources like government support and relief efforts in cases of local disaster. Grants will fill gaps in services and needs that are not being met by existing nonprofit, local, state and federal resources and programs.
