Making A Difference During COVID-19

Much like you, at the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan, we are closely monitoring the development of the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic.

As this global crisis rapidly evolves, we continue to learn new information about the effect of the virus on our cities, towns, and neighborhoods. In response, we are working as quickly as possible to ensure the health and safety of our community by determining how we, as a regional philanthropic partner, can help most effectively.

We do not yet know what the long-term effects of this crisis will be, but our grantee partners and other community members are helping us determine where needs are most critical right now.

In response to what we have heard from organizations across the region, we have joined with other funders to provide financial support for specific needs in the community which are not being addressed through other efforts with our COVID-19 Relief Fund for Southeast Michigan.

The range of issues is wide – from needs for cultural institutions to domestic violence to needs for small business. We know government is addressing some of these, but we want to monitor as we look for ways for philanthropy to fill in the gaps.

If you want advice as a donor to support organizations or issues during COVID, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to lift suggestions to you.

As we learn how best to address this evolving pandemic together, the impact of regional collaboration and local contributions has never been more apparent. By working together with our friends and neighbors, we can ensure the health and safety of our community as effectively as possible.
