COVID-19 Rapid Response Grants

In response to the global pandemic, we want to continue to support our community partners on the front line. Grantees who received at least $2,500 in support from us in 2019 are invited to apply for a rapid response grant to address COVID-19 concerns.

Organizations may request up to $5,000 each to support their COVID-19 response, through a specific program or direct support of a vulnerable population.

A simplified, ‘Rapid Response’ grant application process has been established. Applicants will be asked for the following:

  • Project Name
  • Amount Requested (up to $5,000)
  • Description of the Need
  • Other Funding Also Addressing this Need
  • Program Budget

Submission of a request does not guarantee funding. If you need any assistance with this process or in completing an application, please contact the staff of the Foundation including Meg Distler at; Marla Rust at; or Amy Saleik at
