COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund
100% of Donations Will Be Double Matched up to $100,000 through July 21st.
The Northern NJ Community Foundation launched the COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund to provide immediate resources to vetted small nonprofit organizations in Northern New Jersey with limited budgets serving our neighbors in Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Passaic, and Union Counties. Many of these grassroots local nonprofits are faced with difficult financial choices about whom to serve and how. Local residents face increased struggles because of reduced or lost income, food and housing insecurity, health expenses and childcare needs.
Additionally, social distancing is causing increased isolation and loneliness among community members. The Fund will also support nonprofit arts organizations and those providing arts programs and services in the county to build community engagement in a time of isolation. Nonprofit arts organizations providing services to vulnerable populations such as artists experiencing loss of income resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic will also be considered for support.
Information about the grant making criteria and the application process will be posted online in the coming weeks.
Please help us serve Northern New Jersey in this critical time. Your contribution of any size makes a difference.
