Community Emergency Response Fund Fund
About This Fund
The Community Foundation of Jackson Hole has activated the Community Emergency Response Fund to support local nonprofits helping those directly impacted by COVID-19 in addressing their ongoing needs. As a preparedness measure, the Foundation has committed an initial $150,000 to this Fund, which has been matched by generous donors.
The Community Emergency Response Fund is addressing community needs in coordination with local front line agencies. Since launching in mid-March, the Emergency Response Fund has granted a total of more than $2 million dollars to more than 20 local organizations. Relief funds are being disbursed daily to nonprofits, as the Community Foundation receives requests for assistance.
