New Hampshire Charitable Foundation: Community Crisis Action Fund

Host Organization: New Hampshire Charitable Foundationmdi-circle-small Concord, NH, United States mdi-circle-small


We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic is having a significant impact on individuals and families. This fund will support community-based organizations that are directly supporting families and residents.

This fund will support a strategic response to the COVID-19 pandemic:
1. Immediate unrestricted grants to scores of nonprofits working on the front lines to reduce the pain and hardship from COVID-19 for our most vulnerable neighbors — food for hungry kids and seniors, shelter for homeless people and families, transportation, whatever assistance is needed wherever it is needed.
2. Strategic grants to help reduce the longer-term impact of COVID-19 on critical systems such as health care, emergency response, child care and food security — especially for marginalized children and families. These grants will complement and amplify other funding sources, including public appropriations.
3. Support for local emergency funds being set up by United Ways and other grassroots funders to get assistance directly to individuals and families who need it most.

This fund will be used to provide grants for organizations working on the frontline of this outbreak and directly serving the most vulnerable throughout this crisis.
