The Community Fund of Bronxville, Eastchester and Tuckahoe (TCF) announces the launch of the Community Fund Covid-19 Relief Fund in response to the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the subsequent growing needs of its community.
The new 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 as well as offering assistance to neighboring communities in Mount Vernon and Yonkers. Up to $250,000 will be made immediately available to assist those local agencies and organizations that are supporting those that have already been hit the hardest by the pandemic.
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 as efficiently as possible through the nonprofit sector.
“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.
