In response to the current crisis and unprecedented circumstances caused by the global coronavirus pandemic, St. David’s Foundation launched a $10 million COVID-19 Recovery Fund to support nonprofits and public entities during this challenging and uncertain time. The fund will provide grants to support both immediate and intermediate needs of nonprofits and public entities working on the front lines to provide emergency assistance to those impacted by COVID-19 in some of Central Texas’ most vulnerable communities.
This fund is designed to complement the efforts of local health departments, public health officials, and federal subsidies – while expanding local capacity to address aspects of the outbreak as immediately and efficiently as possible. Beyond the immediate needs facing our community, we believe this public health crisis has created an extraordinary moment to call for greater and more equal health justice within our Central Texas community. St. David’s Foundation is committed to partnering with our neighbors throughout this time.
Across all of the Foundation’s goals and principles, we are guided by a commitment to achieve health equity. This requires the prioritization of available assets to those most in need in order to help remove barriers and provide relief where vital resources may be lacking. We remain committed to listening, learning and adapting our ways of working based on the ever-evolving needs of the community. Together, we stand strong as a community as we lift up Central Texas today and tomorrow and look ahead toward recovery and rebuilding.
Funding recipients for the first phase of the St. David’s Foundation COVID-19 Recovery Fund can be found here. We encourage you to revisit this page for updates regarding the next phase of funding and visit our Facebook and Twitter pages for additional information. As ever, we continue to use this time for reflection and learning alongside our community partners in order to inform our grantmaking processes.
