The Communities of Coastal Georgia Foundation and United Way of Coastal Georgia have opened the Community Emergency Needs Fund to receive gifts and make grants in response to the spreading Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
This will be a flexible resource able to respond to the emergent needs of the residents of Coastal Georgia who are disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 and the economic and public health consequences of this outbreak. Click here to give now.
“For those who feel called to support our community in the face of this crisis, a gift, large or small, to the Response Fund is something actionable that will have certain impact,” says Paul White, CEO and President, Communities of Coastal Georgia Foundation.
This fund will also support the gaps in the capacity of our existing nonprofit partners adversely affected by the impact of COVID-19. Gaps include unanticipated interruptions in business operations, impacts from interruptions in state and/or local government programs or services, and the impact of volunteering in an age of social distancing. “Strengthening the capacity of programs supporting our residents and reconnecting those in need with services during and after this pandemic has passed will allow our community to recover quickly”, says Virginia Brown, President and CEO, United Way of Coastal Georgia.
