Priorities of the Fund are to support nonprofits whose operations:

  • provide services to those whose health and well-being are immediately impacted by the pandemic;

  • make technology, essential for remote learning, and other tools accessible to students and youth in support of their education;

  • provide support to frontline workers and community members putting their safety at risk during this time.
