West Tennessee Healthcare Foundation establishes COVID-19 response fund
JACKSON, Tenn. — Thursday, The Foundation announced the establishment of its COVID-19 Response Fund to assist citizens of Madison County.
This fund is designed to provide a quick response to organizations working with Madison County residents who have been impacted by the novel coronavirus.
Funds are limited to 501 (c)(3) agencies and are not available to individuals at this time.
The Foundation will administer grants to non-profit agencies working with our most vulnerable communities in response to this crisis.
The Foundation will not request formal applications for funding during this time. Instead, The Foundation will work with local leadership to identify needs and the agencies addressing those needs and to recommend grant awards. Funds will be granted to local agencies as needed during the initial and ongoing crisis periods with plans to make the first grants in the next few weeks.
The Foundation is making an initial contribution of $20,000 to the COVID-19 Response Fund and encourages fellow citizens to contribute as well.
Gifts may be mailed to The Foundation at 74 Directors Row, Jackson TN 38305 or made online at wthfoundation.org.
