This week, we announced one additional grant from the COVID-19 Response Fund, bringing the total provided to our local nonprofits to more than $355,000 to 49 organizations across the region. See the list of grants here.

Thanks to your generosity, our Board of Trustees and staff were able to quickly deploy resources to address critical needs in vulnerable populations. Additional grants will be announced in the coming weeks, as 100% of the funds received will be distributed for COVID-19-related issues.

On May 27, 2020, the Greater Toledo Community Foundation Board of Trustees approved the creation of the Community Resilience Fund to address long-term recovery efforts of individuals and organizations as a result of the COVID outbreak. GTCF will seed the fund with $100,000, and invites local individuals, philanthropists, family foundations, corporations and businesses to add to the fund in support of our community’s recovery.  The fund is designed to thoughtfully deploy resources to (1) community-based organizations providing services that assist residents in stabilizing their lives after experiencing impacts caused by the outbreak, and (2) organizations restructuring their service delivery and agency operations based on lessons learned from the coronavirus pandemic.

Nonprofit organizations implementing long-term recovery initiatives related to the coronavirus outbreak can submit a proposal through the Foundation’s online application process.  Grant Guidelines and additional details of this new funding opportunity are provided at https://www.toledocf.org/grants-2/
