TCF is announcing the Relaunch of the CF Covid-19 Relief Fund in response to the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the subsequent growing needs of our community. Year to date the Fund has granted over $125,000 to those nonprofit organizations helping support those most in need in Lower Westchester. Additional dollars will be made immediately available to assist local agencies and organizations that are supporting those that have already been hit the hardest by the pandemic.
The Covid19 Relief Fund is intended to offer immediate relief to community programs that address social, economic and other repercussions of the novel coronavirus in Bronxville, Eastchester and Tuckahoe. We will also be offering assistance to our neighboring communities of Mount Vernon and Yonkers.
Designed to be flexible and nimble in order to support trusted frontline community organizations, the fund’s purpose is to complement the work of local officials and expand capacity to address all aspects of the outbreak through the nonprofit sector.
The application due date is October 1st, 2020.
“Because this crisis is global in scale, it’s easy to feel powerless, but we can take back our power by lending a helping hand to our neighbors and community members that are suffering the most. This is the true meaning of community. “
Aiming for a quick turnaround, the Community Fund Grants Committee will review all proposals from local agencies and respond on a rolling basis.
