Established to support our communities.
In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Elk County Community Foundation is establishing the COVID-19 Assistance Fund. The Community Foundation will administer grants from the fund to nonprofit organizations in Elk County that are serving vulnerable populations. Support may also be given to nonprofits who have seen detrimental impacts to their fiscal and administrative operation as a result of a loss of revenue, fundraising, or staffing.
Your donations will help grow this fund!
We know that it is our community-based organizations that will take the brunt of the impact, both immediately and in the months to follow. Much like our hospitals are bracing for a dramatic increase in patients in need of acute care, our human service nonprofits must brace for the same, with potentially less contributions to support this important work, as the market continues to decline.
We invite donors to join together in this effort. By pooling our funds, we can collectively support our community nonprofits and make a bigger impact on their needs. The Elk County Community Foundation will waive administrative fees on all donations and will distribute 100% of all donations to those agencies in need by an open grant process.
Donations to this new fund can be mailed to the Elk County Community Foundation at P.O. Box 934, St. Marys, PA, 15857 with check made to the ECCF – COVID-19 Assistance Fund. Click the button below to make a donation online. Please indicate the COVID-19 Assistance Fund as the fund name.
