COVID-19 Emergency Grants
The COVID Collaborative is administering a common grant application to support local organizations impacted by COVID-19. Organizations can apply for emergency grants to support increases to demands in services and/or grants to support general operating expenses when revenues have been impacted by COVID-19-related closures. The Community Foundation is collecting applications and they will be evaluated for funding by the COVID Collaborative. Phase II applications will be accepted through noon on May 1, 2020, and applications will be considered on a rolling basis. (Please note: due to circumstances changing almost daily, this date may be subject to change.)

The Community Foundation is a partner in the COVID Collaborative, which consists of several organizations in the local funding community, to help Frederick County individuals and households impacted by COVID-19. We are working with United Way of Frederick County, Ausherman Family Foundation, Delaplaine Foundation, Inc., Helen J. Serini Foundation, Women’s Giving Circle of Frederick County, The William E. Cross Foundation, The Mark and Susan Butt Saturday Mornings Fund, and other organizations and donors.
How Does The Grant Application Process Work?
Frederick County based organizations submit their grant applications through our online system, within the specified application period. The Grants Committee, comprised of board members and other community volunteers with specific expertise, review the applications and make funding recommendations to the Board of Trustees. Our team will then help the receiving organization put its grant into motion.
