COVID-19: Non -Profit Resources for COVID-19

by | Mar 23, 2020 | Event

In times of crises we in Bandon rely on our nonprofits to support our community for so many needs – food, shelter, health care – and so much more. Once again during this COVID-19 crisis we see nonprofits coming together, springing into action, and taking care of our community.

However, while nonprofits are busy taking care of the community’s needs, nonprofits are simultaneously grappling internally with the challenges of operating their own organizations and dealing with the harsh realities of a situation that is fast moving and constantly changing. Budgets are strained and we know most of our nonprofits are hurting right now – many have had to cancel programs, close facilities and cancel fundraisers that provide the dollars for their programs and supplies.

Funders have been very responsive and are working hard to support Oregon’s nonprofits in various ways. Oregon Community Foundation together with a group of foundations has launched an Oregon Community Recovery Fund, MRG Foundation has launched a Community Response Fund, Northwest Health Foundation has made immediate changes in response to COVID-19, and The Ford Family Foundation announced grantee flexibility. Also, the United Way of Lane County has launched a Community Response Fund and the United Way of Jackson County has launched a COVID-19 Response Fund. We know that the United Way agency for Coos/Curry is working on a similar fund. We will continue to update this information as it becomes available.
