CFSEA Spring Re-purposing Emergency Funding

The Community Foundation grants $100,030 in emergency funding to 18 charities across the region.


CFSEA Board of Directors are pleased to announce $100,030 in emergency funding to support vulnerable populations in the wake of the pandemic from the Spring 2020 Re-purposing funds.

This  funding will support both physical and mental health, domestic violence, food insecurities and youth initiatives. Our grants committee worked closely with municipal leaders and other local funders to ensure these funds would help our most vulnerable populations and fill some of the funding gaps in the communities we serve.
