McKean County Community Foundation awards $26,500 from Covid-19 Assistance Fund

The McKean County Community Foundation (MCCF) is pleased to announce the awarding of Covid-19 grants to eleven area non-profit organizations. The MCCF Covid-19 Grants Committee, appointed by the Foundation’s Board of Directors, reviewed multiple applications and voted to distribute $26,500 from the MCCF COVID-19 Assistance Fund for various projects and programs to benefit local agencies.

The grant funding will support a variety of needs that agencies have experienced as a result of Covid-19 related issues. Many have experienced loss of funding that directly affects their operations and programs due to the inability to hold fundraising events. Through their grants, organizations are addressing safety issues, the need for additional staff and volunteers, and new outreach programs to ensure services are available to those in need.

Organizations receiving grants were Alcohol & Drug Abuse Services, Inc.; Bradford Ecumenical Home, Inc.; Bradford Learning Center; CARE for Children; CASA of McKean County; CTC Seneca Highlands; The Guidance Center; McKean County Historical Society; No Feline Left Behind in McKean County; YMCA; and YWCA.

The McKean County Community Foundation (MCCF) established the COVID-19 Assistance Fund in the spring of 2020 to help ease the impact of the pandemic that has affected the community in so many ways. Several rounds of grants have been awarded, now totaling $73,530 that has been distributed to agencies in McKean County.

The McKean County Community Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides the administrative and investment management services that make it easy for donors to establish funds that accomplish their charitable wishes with their tax deductible donations while improving the quality of life in our communities.
