COVID-19 Response Fund

The COVID-19 Response Fund provides support for individuals and organizations that are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The fund allows the Foundation to address the community’s most pressing needs by granting to local organizations who provide basic needs and services to residents of the county.

The Fund gives residents and businesses an opportunity to donate to the pass-through fund with 100% of their donations (net credit card fees) supporting the nonprofits helping our most vulnerable populations.

The COVID-19 relief funding is made possible through a generous grant by United Way of Monroe County, Indiana United Ways, and Lilly Endowment Inc.
