Published March 16, 2020
Like all in our community, St. David’s Foundation is actively monitoring the evolving health situation presented by COVID-19 and its impact both globally and to those of us in our region. We urge you to work intentionally to keep yourself and others healthy, support those around you—as appropriate and safe—as well as commit to personal self-care.
These are unprecedented times for us all. However if we act with wisdom, thoughtfulness and, whenever possible, in the spirit of the greater good, we will find our way to a better and healthier future together.
Working with our Partner Organizations
We are working hard to assess the long-term needs of our partners and the community as a whole. For the immediate term, keeping our partners as strong as possible during this time is paramount to us, and we have made the decision to convert most existing grants to fund general operating expenses. We hope this will provide immediate and necessary flexibility to these organizations.
Emergency Fund Information
We are also in the process of thinking through other ways to deploy needed resources for the coming weeks and months through an emergency fund, but we are not considering grants for this fund yet. We will have further details to share shortly.
