COVID-19 Disaster Relief Fund Fund
About This Fund
Hosted by the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana, the Disaster Relief – COVID-19 Response Fund will award one-time grants on a rolling basis to non-profits whose operations in support of seniors, children, immigrants, workers and other vulnerable populations have been stressed by the outbreak. The Fund is designed to be adaptable in its goals and focus, which will evolve as community members and nonprofits in our region share their needs.
The Community Foundation encourages institutions, companies and other funders to contribute to the Fund, which will work in partnership with local leaders and other funders to ensure the Fund has maximum reach and effectiveness.
Given the immediate needs within our Clark and Floyd County service area, the Fund is currently focused on providing support grants to 501c3 nonprofits that address the basic needs of vulnerable populations under additional strain due to the pandemic as well as to small businesses adversely impacted by cancellations and closures due to COVID-19. Grants for small business assistance for businesses in both Clark and Floyd County will be made through the Small Business Emergency Loan Fund at Caesars Foundation of Floyd County.
About The Host Organization
The Community Foundation of Southern Indiana was formed by a group of Southern Indiana residents who wanted to build charitable resources that would benefit nonprofits and residents of Southern Indiana, forever. Through their support, and funds from the Indianapolis-based Lilly Endowment Inc., the Community Foundation of Southern Indiana was established in 1991 with nearly $1 million and a handful of funds.
