covid-19 response fund

The Woodford County Community Fund Board of Advisors have created the Woodford County COVID-19 Response Fund to provide critical support to vulnerable populations in Woodford County who are adversely affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. This charitable fund will provide grants to nonprofit organizations in Woodford County with experience delivering services related to food, healthcare, childcare, transportation and the elderly.

“The Woodford County Community Fund expresses our belief that in Woodford County we share resources to ensure that we come together to care for each other.” said Lori Garkovich, Chair of the Woodford County Community Fund. “Now is the time for us to stand together for our friends and neighbors.”

To move resources quickly and not further burden organizations at the frontline of this outbreak, the Fund has dramatically simplified the application process for relief response grants. Grants will be distributed on a rolling basis as fundraising continues throughout the outbreak and recovery phases of the crisis, making it possible to move resources quickly and adapt to evolving needs. Nonprofit agencies seeking funding may download the grant application here.
