CCCCF’s COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund

During these unprecedented times, the Chester County Community Foundation is extremely thankful for your charitable generosity and continued trust. How will the spread of the COVID-19 virus affect the region? There is so much we do not know. Increased social distancing, shutdowns, quarantines, health concerns and economic concerns impact us all. Some moreso than others. To help, please support nonprofits that work with the most vulnerable people in our community.
