Greater Lowell Community Foundation COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund

Due to the rising concern of the impact of the COVID-19 virus , particularly on vulnerable populations in our community, such as the elderly, low-income and homeless, the Greater Lowell Community Foundation is starting the GLCF COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund to support the unanticipated needs of those nonprofits serving our community during these uncertain times. Requests have come into the foundation for funds to cover unforeseen costs of needs including: portable sinks, antibacterial supplies, lunch bags and supplies as well as prepackaged food. The Community Foundation has seeded the GLCF COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund with an initial amount of $10,000. GLCF will accept community donations and working in concert with our public health departments, will strategically grant to local nonprofits serving those affected by the COVID-19 virus.
