Gloucester COVID-19 Response Fund
The Gloucester Community Foundation is constantly monitoring the evolving situation concerning the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and its potential impacts on our region. It is at times like this when our community must come together to support the most vulnerable among us. GCF stands ready to assist our nonprofit partners who are working on the front lines of this pandemic, ensuring our children are fed, the health needs of our elders are met, and the men and women who make up this strong and vibrant community are supported in their times of greatest need.
It is in this spirit of service and support that we have established the Gloucester COVID-19 Response Fund to support those of our nonprofit partners who are addressing the most critical needs of our community, as well as those who will be crucial to the ongoing support and long-term recovery of our area. We urge you to join us, in whatever capacity you are able, to respond to the needs of our friends and neighbors.
We anticipate the needs will be many, and while GCF is positioned well to respond with grant funding, we know it will take the entire community coming together to provide the resources necessary to face this challenge head on.
