The McKean County Community Foundation (MCCF) is pleased to announce that grants are now available from their COVID-19 Assistance Fund for this granting period. Grant applications are due by July 30. Non-profit organizations serving McKean County area encouraged to apply. The grant application is available on the Foundation’s website, www.mckeancountyfoundation.org, on the Open Grants page.
The COVID-19 public health crisis and resulting economic crisis have created a variety of challenges for organizations in communities across the country. MCCF will administer grants from The COVID-19 Assistance Fund to nonprofit organizations in McKean County that are serving vulnerable populations. Throughout forced closures, months of remote work, and inconsistent reopening plans, nonprofits have constantly adjusted by implementing strategies like virtual nonprofit fundraising to stay afloat. Support may be given to nonprofits who have seen detrimental impacts to their fiscal and administrative operation as a result of a loss of revenue, fundraising, or staffing, with focus on education and health care services throughout McKean County.
By establishing the COVID-19 Assistance Fund in McKean County, the Foundation’s purpose is to bolster and coordinate philanthropic response to the disruptive impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our neighbors, our community and the nonprofit agencies that serve them. For questions about applying for a grant or making a donation to the Fund, feel free to contact the Foundation office at 814-834-2125.
