COVID-19 Relief Fund
This fund will address the needs of our region’s most vulnerable residents impacted by the Coronavirus by supporting a variety of tangible needs and essential services. It provides a trusted repository for philanthropic assets directed specifically for this purpose.
Our regional nonprofits have shared the overwhelming challenges they are experiencing as a result of the pandemic. Many are unable to raise money as they have in the past due to cancelled fundraising events, inability to sell tickets, or closing thrift stores. Others have had new business costs as they transition to services online. And others are experiencing a big increase in demand for services and assistance.
The fund will support community needs identified by staff, our partners and requests from local nonprofits. Grants will be made to nonprofit agencies that are providing direct aid to impacted individuals and families in Modoc, Shasta, Siskiyou, and Tehama counties. Community Foundation leaders will be closely monitoring how the Coronavirus impacts our communities and will deploy resources as soon as possible to best meet evolving needs.
Due to high need, the fund has been exhausted with the September 2020 round of awards. As the need is expected to continue, those wishing to contribute to the fund can make a secure, online tax-deductible donation by filling out the form below, mail a check to the Community Foundation of the North State, 1335 Arboretum Drive, Suite B, Redding, CA 96003 with “COVID-19 Relief Fund” in the memo, or call 530.244.1219.
