Rapid Response Fund for Ventura County Fund
About This Fund
The Ventura County Community Foundation, in coordination with the County of Ventura, Amgen Foundation, Southeast Ventura County YMCA, Give An Hour, and the Economic Development Collaborative, has launched a COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund for Ventura County to support nonprofit organizations addressing the needs of individuals and families with food and housing support, childcare, wage replacement, mental health care, and more. The fund will also go to supporting small businesses through this crisis.
The purpose of the Rapid Response Fund is to support those organizations providing basic human needs to individuals, families, and small business in Ventura County.
We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are best positioned to lead long-term plans to stop COVID-19. This fund will help stop the virus's spread and give communities on the front lines of the crisis the resources they need to act quickly and protect the most vulnerable.
