As a community foundation, SVCF is positioned to meet the ongoing needs of our local communities and take on unexpected challenges, including response to the alarming spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. In recent weeks, SVCF has been closely monitoring the rapidly changing situation and working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Foundation, local public health agencies, our community partners to prepare for a potential outbreak.
SVCF is leading an effort with our other Bay Area philanthropic partners on a regional response to this public health crisis. Our COVID-19 Coronavirus Regional Response Fund provides the community an opportunity to help our region meet the developing challenges linked with COVID-19 Coronavirus.
Funds from SVCF’s COVID-19 Coronavirus Regional Response Fund will support lead organizations representing each of the ten Bay Area counties and their immediate efforts in addressing COVID-19 related challenges in their respective counties.
