Three Rivers Community Foundations COVID-19 Response Fund continues to grow, and to date 16 grants have been made to support critical nonprofit services. Earlier this month Three Rivers Community Foundation (3RCF) launched the fund to provide a quick-turnaround grant opportunity for 501c3 nonprofits who are responding to the various needs in our community due to the impact of COVID-19. The fund was seeded with $50,000 from anonymous fundholders and has grown with additional donations to almost $74,000. 3RCF is pleased to announce that with two rounds of funding totaling over $45,000 has been distributed in Benton and Franklin counties. At least one more round of funding is available. The fund is open for contributions and additional grants will be made on a rolling basis as long as funds are available and 100% of funds raised will be used locally.
“As we receive applications it is clear that in Benton and Franklin counties nonprofits are responding with creativity and resourcefulness during this difficult time. Many more individuals and families need help than ever before, and organizations are adapting and going above and beyond to meet the growing needs.
