COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund

The Community Foundation is working with county departments, philanthropic partners and nonprofits throughout the Chester County region to coordinate COVID-19 funding initiatives. Nonprofits, especially those that provide basic needs such as food, healthcare and financial support have an immediate increased need for unrestricted funding to meet heightened needs.

The Community Foundation’s COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund provides flexible resources to Chester County nonprofits that are disproportionately impacted by coronavirus and the economic consequences of this outbreak.
