The Community Foundation of Frederick County is appalled and deeply concerned about what is taking place in our country. Recent events involving violence and threats against African American citizens have laid bare the racism, prejudice, and oppression that exist in our society.
Coronavirus doesn’t stop philanthropy. Hear from Betsy Day, president and CEO of The Community Foundation of Frederick County, as she checks in with the community about the work the Community Foundation has been doing during the pandemic to help nonprofits support the people they serve and award scholarships to deserving students for the upcoming academic year.
The Community Foundation of Frederick County is a partner in the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Campaign, a collaborative effort to support nonprofits that directly help those adversely affected by the COVID-19 crisis. Programs most affected by this crisis include but are not limited to utility and rent assistance, emergency shelter, financial stability programs, transportation needs, prescriptions and medical supplies, food and supplies for seniors, and behavioral and physical health services.
These are unprecedented times. The rapid spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has dramatically changed our way of life. The economic fallout from COVID-19 is causing significant hardship for many Frederick County households, individuals, nonprofits, and businesses.
