COVID-19 Response Fund for Greater Dayton Fund
About This Fund
With the outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and an increased strain on individuals and families in the Dayton Region, The Dayton Foundation and the United Way of the Greater Dayton Area, along with a coalition of philanthropic, government and other individual partners, have joined together to establish the COVID-19 Response Fund for Greater Dayton.
Grants from the fund will complement the work of public health officials and expand the community’s capacity to respond and assist effectively and efficiently in the outbreak. Grants will be awarded to vetted community-based and 501(c)(3) charitable organizations that are focused on: immediate, basic human needs (food, shelter, safety, etc.); mental health services; and addressing the economic impact on individuals from reduced or lost work due to the outbreak.
