Emergency Relief Fund Fund
About This Fund
The Southwest Florida Community Foundation in partnership with United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee has created the SWFL Emergency Relief Fund in response to COVID-19 to serve our neighbors in Southwest Florida.
The fund will complement the work of public health officials and expand local capacity to address the outbreak as effectively as possible. Donations to this fund will help rapidly deploy resources to basic needs and healthcare nonprofit organizations to support their programs as well as their staff at the front lines of our community’s coronavirus outbreak.
The COVID-19 Response Fund will prioritize community-based organizations serving the Southwest Florida region. We are doing this with a recognition that many Southwest Florida nonprofits serve workers and residents in our neighboring counties.
