The COVID-19 Response Fund for Northern Virginia was established to provide flexible funding resources for nonprofit organizations and other programs in our region responding to COVID-19 and its impacts. The Fund’s focus is to help communities who are disproportionately impacted by the virus and its economic consequences.
To date, the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia has awarded nearly $2.1 million through five rounds of grants, as follows: Round One grantees on Friday, March 20, Round Two on Friday, April 3rd, Round Three on Friday, April 24th, Round Four on Tuesday, May 26th and Round Five on Tuesday, June 30th.
With Round 5, we have completed all rounds of funding for the COVID-19 Response Fund. The COVID-19 Response Fund for Northern Virginia is just the beginning of our work to address the local fallout of the virus, to examine and help dismantle existing inequities in our civic and social systems that caused such disproportionate impacts of the virus in the first place, and to continue to help build a community that truly works for everyone.
