COVID-19 Fund Fund
About This Fund
The PHL COVID-19 Fund provides grants to nonprofits throughout the Greater Philadelphia region that have a demonstrated track record of serving those most at-risk during this crisis, such as seniors, people with disabilities, and those who are experiencing homeless or who are economically disadvantaged.
The Fund brings together a diverse coalition of philanthropy, government and business partners, all joined together as one unified regional community to create a regional rapid response fund to support nonprofits at the frontline of COVID response. The Fund complements the work of regional public health officials and expands local capacity to address the outbreak as efficiently as possible.
Grants will be used to continue community safety nets including food pantries and health services; help with preparedness and protection needs such as hygiene supplies; and ensure access to accurate, up-to-date information and available services.
