Grants from the Foundation’s Relief Fund focus on organizations impacted by COVID-19
The Sacramento Region Community Foundation), one of the region’s leading local grantmakers, announced that, in the past three weeks, it has awarded over $520,000 to 73 nonprofit organizations that provide vital services within the capital area and that face severe operational challenges and non-recoverable expenses as a result of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.
These grants from the Foundation’s Sacramento Region Disaster Relief Fund support organizations providing essential services—including emergency assistance, food security, healthcare, and childcare—to some of the capital area’s most vulnerable populations. Among the grants awarded from the Relief Fund is one that will expand the capacity of a domestic violence crisis line to meet increased need, another that will support meal delivery to seniors who are unable to cook for themselves, and one that will supply diapers and other hard-to-find supplies to unhoused families.
