The Omaha Community Foundation has established the COVID-19 Response Fund to address critical needs in our community.
Together with several local foundations, the Omaha Community Foundation has launched the COVID-19 Response Fund to provide flexible resources to organizations in the metro area working with communities who are disproportionately impacted by coronavirus and the economic consequences of this outbreak.
ProgramsWhile our healthcare systems, public health practitioners, and local universities are doing everything in their power to slow the spread of coronavirus, our local nonprofits are also preparing to assist those most vulnerable during this unprecedented time.
The first phase of this work is intended to be a rapid response to immediate needs. As we learn more about our local needs and the changing nature of this unprecedented situation, we will adapt our process.
One-time operating grants will fund organizations that have deep roots in the community and strong experience working with residents without health insurance and/or access to sick days, people with limited English language proficiency, healthcare and low-wage workers, and communities of color, among others.
