Northwest Corner Gives logoIn response to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Community Foundation has launched Northwest Corner Gives: COVID-19 Relief Grants through the Northwest Corner Gives: COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund.  Relief Grants feature crowdsourced gift matching that enables local nonprofits to set fundraising goals to meet their immediate needs, including operational support.

The Community Foundation guarantees a grant for 50 percent of each nonprofit goal then matches dollar-for-dollar all gifts until each goal is achieved. Matching grants are made possible by generous gifts from community members, and anonymous, and discretionary Community Foundation funds.
