As the impact of COVID-19 grows, many individuals in our communities are feeling the effects of this unprecedented pandemic. Our local non-profit organizations assisting those most affected by the pandemic feel the strain and burden on their resources. These frontline care givers and service providers need our support as they face the day to day challenges of helping those in need. Critical support is needed now and will be needed after COVID-19 fades from the headlines.

The COVID-19 Response Fund will support a wide range of qualified non-profits assisting those most affected by the coronavirus – directly or indirectly. The Fund will provide support for all aspects of health and wellness related issues faced by the most vulnerable in our communities.

The COVID-19 Response Fund will be administered by the Foothills Community Foundation in close coordination with area partners including: the United Way of Anderson County, United Way of Pickens County, AnMed Health Foundation, Cannon Memorial Hospital Foundation and others.  100% of donations made to the COVID-19 Response Fund will be used to help individuals with verifiable needs through qualified agency partners in our region.

Grants will be awarded by the Foundation from the COVID-19 Response Fund to our area partners and agencies who are addressing the most urgent needs in our communities. Initially, the highest priorities will be food, hygiene, shelter, utility and health care needs. Donations may be restricted to specific counties in our region or specific agencies if desired.  For more information about the COVID-19 Response Fund call 864-222-9096 or email [email protected]  To make a donation, click on DONATE TO A FUND on our home page and select COVID-19 Response Fund on the drop-down menu.
