The Whitewater Community Foundation is announcing that they have created a
COVID-19 Community Recovery Fund.
This fund will be used to collect donations from individuals and businesses who wish to assist in the COVID-19 relief effort by making a charitable, tax-deductible contribution.
Grants from the Fund will be awarded to qualified, nonprofit organizations or government organizations, and not to individuals. Grants will be paid as reimbursements in an effort to aid those organizations which have or will be having to spend money to support our community during this crisis. The distributions from the fund will be at the discretion of the Foundation’s Board of Directors.
After all grants are awarded and a reasonable amount of time has passed, should there be any remaining money in the fund, it will be transferred to the Foundation’s permanent Human Services Fund designation where it will continue to support our nonprofit community.
In addition, the funds from the regular Community Action Grants will be designated towards aiding in the COVID-19 Community Recovery Fund.
To make a donation, individuals can mail in a check or go online to the Foundation’s website and choose COVID-19 Community Fund as the designation.
The Foundation would like to thank everyone for their support and help during this time. Everyone please stay safe and healthy!
