Launched with contributions from 18 regional foundations and businesses, the Central Virginia COVID-19 Response Fund is a coordinated campaign to provide rapid support for local organizations helping those most affected by the pandemic. As a community, we will get through this…together. Join us as we strive to do the most good for the most people.
For donations, you will be directed to a secure payment site hosted by United Way.

Created through a partnership between the Community Foundation and the Emergency Management Alliance of Central Virginia, the fund is designed to mobilize and distribute resources to initially address immediate response. We help organizations and nonprofits that address critical needs such as food and housing access, health care, childcare, senior care, and safety supplies. As funds are collected, an advisory committee distributes grants where they can have the greatest impact.

To move resources quickly, the fund will not use a formal application at this time. Organizations are encouraged to share their needs, which will inform the grant advisory committee. Grants will be made on a rolling basis.
Eligibility is limited to 501(c)(3) organizations and public entities based in or primarily serving the Central Virginia area. Priority will be given to organizations that are serving those most affected by the health impacts of the COVID outbreak, and that have demonstrated an ability to deploy resources quickly and effectively.
