The United Way of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County and The Community Foundation of Harrisonburg & Rockingham County are announcing jointly the establishment of the COVID-19 HR Community Response Fund. Grants from the fund will help support front line human services organizations that have deep roots in Harrisonburg and Rockingham County and strong experience working with those vulnerable in our community.
In June, the fund enters a RECOVERY PHASE. Grant requests must be due to a need created by the COVID-19 crisis. We realize some HR nonprofit organizations are struggling to provide normal services and are facing significant reductions in funding due to COVID-19. Other nonprofits may be having difficulty providing services as they adjust to safe and different operating practices, due to COVID-19 phasing guidelines. Grants will be awarded to Harrisonburg and Rockingham County nonprofit human service organizations to support their work as they assist individuals and families in our community during this time of RECOVERY.
The Community Foundation and United Way strives to work strategically with local nonprofit organizations to provide grants to agencies to meet both immediate and long-term needs related to the impact of the virus in the Harrisonburg and Rockingham County area.
In October 1997, The Community Foundation of Harrisonburg & Rockingham County was conceived when four leaders in our community, Lawrence H. Hoover, Jr., Andrew M. Huggins, Phillip C. Stone, Jr., and John L. Vincie, III, began to explore the potential benefits to the local area that could be derived from a community foundation. These Founding Fathers began to educate the community, focusing on professionals, civic groups and agencies, to increase awareness of this new philanthropic organization.
Minimum Investment: $25
