COVID-19 Response Fund Fund
About This Fund
Hosted by the Boston Foundation, The COVID-19 Response Fund will award one-time operating grants on a rolling basis to non-profits whose operations in support of elders and other vulnerable populations have been stressed by the outbreak. The Boston Foundation encourages institutions, companies and other funders to contribute to the Fund.
The Boston Foundation will work in partnership with the City of Boston and other funders to ensure the Fund has maximum reach and effectiveness. In addition to offering an opportunity to contribute to the Fund, the Boston Foundation is also urging its own donors to look for opportunities to support the critical needs of nonprofits by making general operating support grants to organizations they wish to help.
