Emergency Action Fund Fund
About This Fund
Managed by The Pittsburgh Foundation, which is also a contributor, the Emergency Action Fund will provide financial support quickly to nonprofits and government agencies whose operations support: senior citizens services; child care services; health care needs and medical supplies; food provision during the emergency; shelter for the homeless, the elderly and those with underlying conditions; and assistance to vulnerable populations under stress from the outbreak.
The Emergency Action Fund will serve as a hub for accepting donations from individuals, foundations, and businesses and distributing those funds rapidly to nonprofits on the front lines of COVID-19 response.
