COVID-19 Resources

As a community foundation we work with donors, nonprofits, scholarship recipients and collaborative and funding partners – people and groups who make our community great!  Making connections is a huge part of what we do, and we feel especially strongly about making connections to opportunities that may offer support during this time of need.

This list will be updated from time to time and suggestions for additions may be sent to jess@cfov.org.
