The Southcoast Emergency Response Fund has been established by the Community Foundation in partnership with other regional funders, to rapidly attract and deploy resources to organizations in our region that are disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In the past three weeks the Community Foundation has granted more than $800,000 to nonprofits on the frontlines of this pandemic from the SouthCoast Emergency Response Fund. To date, the Fund has raised more than $2 million from a wide range of corporate donors, foundations, and individuals, in response to the Community Foundation’s call to come together on behalf of our community.
