Coronavirus relief fund created for area non-profits

The COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund will initially help fund programs like food pantries, homelessness and housing assistance.

CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Foundation today announced a new relief fund to help support non-profit organizations that are struggling because of the spread of the coronavirus throughout the area.

The Greater Cleveland COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund has received contributions from local groups totaling nearly $4 million, all of which will go to support non-profits in Cuyahoga, Lake and Geauga counties. 

Money will go towards groups focused on helping groups considered more vulnerable to the spread of the coronavirus, like the homeless, people over 60, those with compromised immune systems, people of color, people with disabilities and more. 

The Cleveland Foundation is still encouraging anyone to donate to help their cause. You can find more information on their website. All donations are tax deductible.
