Essex County Community Foundation: COVID-19 Response Fund

Host Organization: Essex County Community Foundationmdi-circle-small Danvers, MA, United States mdi-circle-small


To support community-based organizations on the front lines of the coronavirus outbreak response, Essex County Community Foundation has announced the creation of the Essex County COVID-19 Response Fund.

In collaboration with funders, government agencies and business partners, the Fund – seeded by $200,000 from ECCF – will provide financial resources to nonprofit organizations working with communities that are disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 and the economic consequences of the outbreak.

The first priority of the Fund is to provide one-time rapid-response grants to organizations that serve priority populations such as:

• Underserved communities needing social service and public health infrastructure.
• Residents with limited access to safe, reliable food sources.
• Communities with a significant percentage of economically vulnerable residents.
